Interview with a Fangirl: Christina G
Today, it is my pleasure to interview Fangirl Christina G, a Disney Store Cast Member who loves everything about Disney, especially Star Wars!
I became aware of Christina through the Twitter Star Wars Fangirl Community.
Welcome Christina to The Adventures of The Everyday Fangirl and thank you for taking the time to answer these questions about being a Fangirl.
When do you realize you were a Fangirl?
Probably when I would have the urge to wear an item of clothing featuring something I was a fan of…haha.
How has social media helped or hindered you?
Social media has helped me in so many ways. The most important one is that I’ve gained many wonderful friends because we share the love for a fandom. I’ve gained one of my best friends because of us sharing our love for the same fandom. Social media has been a blessing to me & I hope that never changes.
When did you first see Star Wars or other favorite fandom, such as Star Trek, Lord of The Rings, etc. and did you love it right away or did this grow on you over time?
I actually was WAY late to the Star Wars fandom. I entered the fandom in late December of 2015 (after The Force Awakens came out). People were so pumped for this franchise, I wanted to see what it was about. I watched A New Hope, which is my favorite SW film, & I loved it. Ended up watching ESB right afterwards. Took me 3 days to watch the 6 movies. I guess you can say I loved it right away. I then watched TFA, Rogue One & even watched Star Wars Rebels. I continue to love love LOVE it.
What have you learned from the Star Wars fan community or other fan communities that has had a positive impact on your life?
I have learned that the Star Wars community is a family. Everyone is a part of this amazing community. We may have our different theories and favorite characters but in the end, we all stand by together to support this franchise that we have come to know and love. I was welcomed with open arms into this community & I am very happy to share my love for this franchise with others who love it as much as I do.
What else do you Fangirl about?
Disney has always been my first fandom. Grew up into Disney & I even work for them. I also fangirl about Supernatural & Marvel, mainly with Guardians of the Galaxy. But I am growing more into the Marvel Universe.
Anything else you want to say to others about being a Fangirl?
Don’t be afraid to let your fangirl flag fly. Represent your fandom and show it off. You never know who else is a Star Wars, Marvel, Disney, etc. fan just like you.
