How did you become a Harry Potter fan?

I started reading the books when I was 6-years-old. My Mom even became a fan and every night she would reread the books with me at bedtime. Soon after I finished the first book, I started my Harry Potter collection. My collection started with a golden snitch T-shirt and grew from there. Every Christmas, Easter, and even birthdays, my collection would grow as family members joined in getting me Harry Potter-related gifts. Now my collection is so big it takes up all the rooms in the house!

What was your reaction to the news about Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them?

I was so excited when I found out I could not stop jumping up and down with a big smile on my face. My heart was pounding.

Describe what being part of the Harry Potter fandom has meant to you in seven words or less.

If you could have one prop from the set of the films, which would it be?
