    I am a Fan Girl


    I like Sci-Fi, but I LOVE Star Wars!!! Growing up girls weren't supposed to play with Star Wars figures, but I did and for a brief period even slept with a Luke Skywalker in Storm Trooper Gear figure. Then in my teenage years, trying to be "cool" I left the Force behind. It wasn't until I was an adult that I rekindled my romance with my inner fan girl. Star Wars isn't just a series of movies, it's a wonderful story with life lessons that you can count on. It has taught me to always trust in myself, and always do what is right. Sticking with my passion, I then turned it into a major hobby. I now host/write the Kessel Run Review on Youtube which features customs and fan art, create custom figures myself, have a room dedicated to nothing but my collection, and have begun writing fan fiction. Star Wars is a huge part of my life and a constant inspiration in all things that I do!
