Fan Focus: Dominique – March 30, 2014

15-year-old Hufflepuff Dominique from Lusaka, Zambia

How did you become a Harry Potter fan?

I started reading the books in second grade when I needed an escape from real life – and I still read them today! I’ve always loved a fantastic story, but Harry Potter has become more than that; it’s a way of life for me.

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

Family, and a place of acceptance.

What do you think you might see if given the chance to look into the Mirror of Erised?

I would probably see myself with Dobby, Dobby being alive that is. I would also probably have the entire hard-cover boxed set of the Harry Potter series!

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

“EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!” I then proceeded to tell all of my family and friends, even the people who lived on different continents, about it. Multiple times. I’m still talking about it, actually.
