President of the Sailor Moon fan club 

When I was graduating sixth grade

I was voted “Most likely to become 

president of the Sailor Moon fan club” 

I was mortified at the time, 

but now, at 31 

I realise that my classmates 

saw something essential about me: 

that I’m a girl driven not

by what’s important 

or what I can achieve

but by the things I love 

as silly as they might be.
