How did you become a Harry Potter fan?
I became a Harry Potter fan when my friend told me about the new book her aunty had got her and told me I had to read it because it was amazing! She lent me the book, and I was hooked almost straightaway. I tore through the books in a week! I will be forever grateful to her because she gave to me what has become my childhood, my whole world.
Describe what being part of the Harry Potter fandom has meant to you in seven words or less.
It’s a lifestyle, not an obsession.
If you could have one prop from the set of the films, which would it be?
What Potter fandom memory would you keep in your Pensieve?
The moment I read the chapter “The Prince’s Tale” and was just an emotional wreck. I sat in my bedroom for days contemplating how amazing Snape was and how he sacrificed his life… and how I realized one day I want someone to love me like Snape loved Lily.
