It was LEGO that got Kat into Star Wars in 2015. After spontaneously buying the LEGO 10188 Death Star set, she finally decided to watch the Original Trilogy and from then on was completely absorbed into a galaxy far, far away. On a very early December morning, Kat got to see her first Star Wars film in the cinema and The Force Awakens still holds a special place in her heart. With this new era of content also came her favourite character – Kylo Ren. She has a self-confessed obsession with all things Knight of Ren related, even going so far as to name her black Labrador Kylo (with Rey, the chocolate Lab, on the way).
Although she is in the middle of studying for several A-Levels, Kat is pretty sure her head is filled with more geeky Star Wars facts than chemistry equations. Reading has been a life-long passion for Kat who owns more books than bookcases, and there’s no modern Star Wars title she hasn’t read. Her love for writing has led to jobs doing reviews and features for both Blocks magazine, alongside LEGO fan-site BrickFanatics.com. Now the opportunity of becoming a part of the Jedi News Literature Team is a dream come true.
