Meet Karen, the star of Episode 3 of the Fangirl Diaries and a self-proclaimed Geek Girl. She's part of a multitude of fandoms in the geek culture—"What fandom am I not part of? Because I like a lot of things! Star Wars, Lord Of The Rings, Marvel, DC, most of the anime, most of the video games, most of the western geekery. You name it, I'm probably part of the Facebook group of it," Karen shares.
Her love for ~all things geek~ started when she was only six years old after she discovered Sailor Moon and Super Mario on TV. "I love her because she is so relatable. Her flaws are so real," she says of her ult fave character Sailor Moon. But more than that, what Karen sees so special about Sailor Moon is how she eventually turned her weaknesses into her strengths: "Her growth in the series, how she takes on more responsibilities, she takes on accountability—it's so inspiring. If she can do it, we can do it!"
Karen's fangirling goes beyond watching series and films and collecting merch: She actually hosts conventions and cosplays as well! Get to know more about Karen's amazing Geek Girl fandom in Episode 3 of the Fangirl Diaries below:
