To all my fellow Star Wars fans out there, May the Fourth be with you!

I have been a Star Wars fan since I was 7 years old...well, more like 8 since I was 7 when I saw my first Star Wars movie in 2005 which was "Revenge Of The Sith." To be completely honest, I left the theater as a very angry and confused kid.

Star Wars has played a major part of my life since middle school, and has helped me through so much. When I hit my lows I always could turn to Star Wars. Plus, it was also something my dad and I could use as a common interest to connect.

Hobbies and a love for movies can play a huge rule in a kid’s life. Star Wars, Harry Potter, Marvel, DC and so many others have created an incredible world for kids to connect and fall in love with.

While some of the fandom is seen as toxic, there is a lot of great to it as well. I still have fun seeing the new Star Wars movies with my friends who I may not get to see as often now that we are adults.

It is a great escape back into a time when life was less stressful. Without Star Wars, I would have struggled a lot more in middle school. It was my outlet, and I'll always be thankful that may dad took me to that movie in 2005 that ended up changing my life.
