Fan Focus: Josephine – February 15, 2015
Age 11 – Minnesota, USA
How did you become a Harry Potter fan?
I have always been an advanced student, and I started reading the [H]arry [P]otter books in kindergarten/first grade. [E]ver since, I have been obsessed. I have hung up posters of my favorite characters and even hung a [S]nitch from my ceiling. I read the series 33 times and am on the 34[th] time.
What would your Patronus be and why?
My Patronus might be an owl. A lot of people probably say that, and it seems pretty common, but my great-grandma loved them; she collected little statues and things with owls on them. I was very close to her, and it hurt me deep[ly] in my heart when she died; I was four and her only great-granddaughter. I used to go to her retirement center and look at her owls, and those were some of my best memories; I have loved owls ever since.
What do you think you might see if given the chance to look into the Mirror of Erised?
I think I would see myself with my best friend because I might never see her again. She was an amazing friend and a fellow Harry Potter geek, but she moved reeeeally far away, and my family can’t really afford airline tickets.
What was your reaction to the news about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them?
I was so surprised, I thought my brother was teasing! I later discovered that this was true and got so excited that I almost started bouncing off the walls!
