“I like being weird. Weird’s all I’ve got. That and my sweet style.” ― Maurice Moss, The IT Crowd
Origin Story: Shereen is a transplant from Arizona, but has lived in Oregon so long that she considers herself a native. She lives with her geeky husband and her dog. She loves to travel and as such has been blogging about budget travel and her personal trips since 2010. If you want to go anywhere in the world, Shereen knows the tips to get you there cheaper. She’ll never turn down a trip to a Disney park or Universal Studios and is a huge Potterhead. This Ravenclaw obsessively plans an annual Harry Potter Birthday party each year with new themes and difficult trivia for House Points.
Shereen is new to cosplay, but loves to attend as many cons in the Portland area as she can. She watches way too much TV, sees a new movie practically every weekend and is a proud member of the Portland chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance. If you also complete your friend’s sentences with song lyrics or movie quotes, or can equate any situation to Harry Potter, you are similar nerds.
