DESTINI Age 24 – USA GRYFFINDOR How did you become a Harry Potter fan? During my childhood my mom and I moved almost each year and we always had *just* enough to get by, which was my resilient mother, I’m sure. At 10, we had just moved to a new town and I was bored & lonely, miserable as only a kid can be. Mom surprised me with SS. I devoured it, then CoS, then ... Read More »

KHAIRUNNISA Age 25 – Kajang, Malaysia RAVENCLAW How did you become a Harry Potter fan? I was 13, and I watched the first movie. When I was younger, I was always fascinated by any magical stories, and Harry Potter sucked me right in and I never got out! I then borrowed the books from my friend (because my mum won’t buy them for me) and continued being enchanted by it continuously. I now am a ... Read More »

OLIVIA Age 20 – USA GRYFFINDOR How did you become a Harry Potter fan? I became a Harry Potter fan when the books first came out. I remember when I was very little falling asleep every night to either my mom reading the books, or listening to Jim Dale reading them on tape. The older I got the more and more I fell in love with the magical world of Harry Potter. What Potter fandom ... Read More »

AISWARYA Age 17 – The Shrieking Shack GRYFFINDOR How did you become a Harry Potter fan? The first harry potter book that I read was ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban ‘ and it was, is, and will be my favorite book forever! It was just mind blowing, and I couldn’t just stop reading all other books of the series. From the first moment I knew that I was obsessed with this magical life. I have ... Read More »

KIM Age 24 – Wolfburg, Germany GRYFFINDOR How did you become a Harry Potter fan? Well, when I was 11 I saw the first Harry Potter movie and from that moment I was suddenly bewitched. So, a few days later I bought my first Harry Potter book – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (of course…). Whenever I was/am stressed or sad or happy I watched and read Harry Potter a thousand times. It’s like a self ... Read More »

LUCY Age 14 – England GRYFFINDOR How did you become a Harry Potter fan? I always loved the films when I was a kid, and I remember being obsessed with Emma Watson right from the start. I started reading the books when I was in Year 6, which I think was just before The Half Blood Prince film was released. I was hooked almost instantly. I had only just got into reading, though, so it took ... Read More »

OLIVIA Age 12 – Boston, USA HUFFLEPUFF How did you become a Harry Potter fan? When I was 7, I barely read any books. My parents begged me to read the popular books that other kids my age read, such as the Narnia series, but I just didn’t get into them. One day, my mum bought me Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone. I forgot about it, until one day I picked it up and started ... Read More »

BEN Age 13 – Wyoming, USA RAVENCLAW How did you become a Harry Potter fan? When I was in 2nd grade, my brother was really into Harry Potter, so one day,  when I was in the school library, I decided to read it. I remember quite clearly (which is strange for me, because I have an absolutely terrible memory, my parents actually think I suffer from short term memory loss) picking up a hardback cover of ...

PRAIRIE Age 21 – British Columbia, Canada HUFFLEPUFF How did you become a Harry Potter fan? I have been a Harry Potter fan since day one. I remember being about six years old and receiving the first three Harry Potter books as a Christmas gift from my grandmother. At that time they were too advanced for me to read on my own, however, when I was eight the first Harry Potter movie came out. On its ... Read More »

SANA Age 16 – England GRYFFINDOR How did you become a Harry Potter fan? I started reading the series in 2012 just after the last movie came out and I was hooked. I still read them from time to time, but I find it incredibly hard to read them because I always end up in tears. It’s actually impossible for me to watch the very last movie (part 2) again because I’ll become an emotional wreck. ... Read More »
