I never imagined I'd be able to say I created a website, and it wouldn't have been possible without a group of incredible people, who I had the pleasure of meeting and working with throughout the course of this project.
Thank you to Diana Raab for supporting the Raab Writing Fellows program for seven years, during which you have given students the opportunity to learn about the power of writing and how it has helped us find our voices.
Dr. Ljiljana Coklin, thank you for guiding me as an instructor this year. You've given me a chance to do something I didn't know I was capable of. Thank you for your advice and support.
Thank you to those who I had the honor of interviewing for this project: Karen De LaVega, Jade Deo, Brune Gonda, Bhavna Madan Mohan, Bowen McCurdy, TJ Klune, and Laura Sanchez, and Soleil. I am so grateful to you all for allowing me the chance to tell your stories. You have all contributed to the success of this project.
And I am eternally grateful to my mentor, Nomi Morris, for being with me every step of the way. Your advice and encouragement have given me the confidence I needed to trust my creative instincts to create a project I can be proud of. It has allowed me to hone my skills and create a beautiful project that means everything to me.
Finally, I'd like to thank the site visitors. Whether you're new to fan culture or an experienced participant, I hope you can learn something from this project. I hope Fandom Lore can help to lift each of your individual voices and make you feel seen in this complex world.
