How did you become a Harry Potter fan?

I read the books growing up and fell in love with them. I took them on every trip and related them back to anything that was happening in my life. Hogwarts is my happy place. I jump into any conversation I overhear about the series and my best friend and I vlog about it on The Late Night Low Down! When it comes to my family and friends: I’m the go-to person for any questions about HP. I even have the Deathly Hallows tattooed on the back of my neck!

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

Much like Harry, I think I would see those I’ve lost in my life. My best friend Aimee who passed away suddenly 6 years ago could quote anything from HP at the drop of a dime! I would also see my grandparents and my amazing cousin Marco who we also lost so suddenly.

Describe what being part of the Harry Potter fandom has meant to you in 7 words or less.

Friendship. Family. Adventure. Harry saved my life.

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

TOM FELTON … just kidding! I think I’d take Harry’s luggage trunk, I can keep all of my HP memorabilia inside it! And take it travelling of course!
