(Younger Student) When I received my Hogwarts Letter that faithful day, I couldn't contain my excitement. I had been waiting for this day for as long as I could remember! I quickly rush downstairs to tell my parents that my letter had finally arrived and we made plans to travel to Diagon Alley and purchase my things. After purchasing all my required books at Flourish and Blotts, we headed to Ollivanders to purchase my wand. I was curious to see what wand would choose me. After trying several, I was handed an Alder wood wand with a phoenix feather core with a length of 10 ¾" and unyielding flexibility. The moment my hand touched the wand, I felt a spark. It tingled in my fingers and ran through my arm before turning warm and then disappearing altogether. Yes, this was it. This was my wand! After waving the wand a few times and being told multiple times by my parents that we had other matters to attend to, we finally headed to Magical Menagerie to look at purchasing my companion for my time at Hogwarts. I looked at many different pets and made eye contact with a skinny black cat that was perched on top of the store counter. I had to have it. My mom loved it so it wasn't difficult to convince my parents that this black cat was meant for me. Her name is Jinx and we are the best of friends already.
The time to head to Hogwarts arrived very quickly! As my mother and I waited for my father to walk through platform 9 3/4, I began to feel anxious. I had waited for this day and was beyond excited but my nerves had begun to make my stomach churn. I was terrified of what would be required of me and it was starting to get to me. My mother seemed to sense this because she gave me a shy smile and then softly said, "Harper, you have nothing to fear. You are my daughter. What do you have to be afraid of?" She then winked at me before wrapping me up into a bear like hug. It was exactly what I needed. She was right! I was ready for this and I was going to knock this thing out of the park! So I took a step and walked through the platform to board the Hogwarts Express. I said a quick goodbye to both of my parents before hopping on board the express with Jinx right behind me. After unboarding the train, I walked along with the rest of the first years until we reached the Great Hall. One by one we were sorted into our house. When I heard "Harper Hawksworth" called, my heart skipped a beat. This was it! I approached the stool and sat hoping for Ravenclaw but not really knowing what to expect. I heard the sorting hat talking to itself about how I had a sense of courage yet it was reserved and how confident and intelligent. "Yes," said the sorting hat, "That will do! RAVENCLAW!" I was so excited that I nearly fell down the steps as I headed toward my house table to take a seat. So this was it. I was a first year student at Hogwarts and I had just been sorted into my desired house, Ravenclaw. I had my faithful companion, Jinx, by my side. So let the adventure begin!
