How did you become a Harry Potter fan?

I’ve always knew about Harry Potter as a child from school and family. When I became a very good reader (age 8), I started to read the Harry Potter books and watch the movies. I was, and still am, a big fan of magic! When I read Harry Potter I fell [sic] like anything is possible! Harry Potter is a part of my life, and without it I would be nothing. The books and movies are so amazing I kept rereading them. When the last movie was made I cried so much in my room.

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

If I could have 1 prop it would definitely be Harry’s wand because he had that wand since the beginning of his journey to defeat Voldemort!

What Potter fandom memory would you keep in your Pensieve?

There are many fandom memories that I could list, but there is one that makes me jump up and down every time I watch it. This moment is in Deathly Hallows [-] Part 2 when Neville says his speech, pulls out the Gryffindor sword, and Harry jumps out of Hagrid’s arms and stands up. It was so WOW to me because everyone thought Harry was dead, and they were all so surprised. This is my all[-]time favorite moment, not just in the Harry Potter series but also in any other movie or book!
