As my time in college came to a close, I realized it was time to wrap up my final letter to the fangirl, to myself. This letter is, in part, a eulogy to the younger me who valued herself primarily as reflections and projections of gendered stereotypes penned by straight, white boy rockers. Moreover, this letter is a vow to other fangirls: I promise to do my best to shape a world that values and empowers you for who you are.
The Giggs may be over on WBAR, but it will Gigg On Forever, in our hearts. Too Cheesy? Sorry, here are some nachos to go with the cheese of our last show.
