BRITTANY Age 20 – United States Hufflepuff How did you become a Harry Potter fan?

Now, more than ten years later, I still read all the books, watch all the movies and just talk about it nonstop. If you could have one prop from the set of the ... Read More »

LAYLA Age 21 – Sydney Slytherin How did you become a Harry Potter fan My father started reading the first book to me when I was in kindergarten – true, he was no Stephen Fry, but there was something refreshing about the way his Japanese accent worked its way into his Voldemort voice, and I was immediately hooked. Since then, I’ve grown a budding affection for the series (a slight understatement, perhaps) and it has ... Read More »

AMANDA Age 22 – Detroit, MI Gryffindor How did you become a Harry Potter fan? 8 years old, cross legged on the floor of my 2nd grade classroom – my teacher was hosting yet another one of her story times. Usually Mrs. Ebling would create her own plots, having each of us close our eyes and imagine ourselves as the heroine of the adventure – but that day was different. That day she decided to ...

BRIAN Age 24 – Colorado Springs, USA Slytherin How did you become a Harry Potter fan? It took me two tries to read the 1st book (my first time I was in the 3rd grade and I just didn’t want to read!) But I got through it on my 2nd go-around, which would have put me in the 4th grade. I really was swept away by the time we got into the depths into Prisoner ... Read More »

I descended into full fan mode though when I read the first book in second grade and I still to this day remember what ... Read More »
