Hi, I’m Mina and I am the founder, creator, and writer for My Fangirl Chronicles!

I’m a twenty-something-year-old fangirl, and have been one for as long as I can remember. From TV shows and movies, to books and music, there’s always been something I’ve been passionate enough about to get excited about! I love to read, write, hike and explore nature, and play video games.

Currently, I’m working full-time while trying to get through my endless TBR list (although, let’s face it, I’d be very sad if I did get through the entire list), enjoy life as best I can, and spend time with my family and two lovable dogs. I’m an aspiring published author and have several novels in the works, each in varying degrees of completion, and hope to get published one day!

Here are a few of my favorite things…
