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 also love to read and write. My love for reading started when I was around ten years old, and I started reading fanfiction. It wasn’t long until I started writing them, too, but it wasn’t until only in these past few years when I realized my passion for writing could possibly be the career I’ve been searching for. It’s crazy how life works: I’ve been writing for most of my life but never thought of pursuing it as a career until after I graduated college.

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 have several novels in the works, each in varying degrees of completion, and hope to get published one day! But, first, I have to finish them…

Here are a few of my favorite things…
