TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3616 - This blog is a feature on Kelly 'Xena' Mitchell!Kelly 'Xena' Mitchell is a part time warrior princess, part time librarian and full time xena fan!
Only having taken on the warrior princess persona for 2 years, she has become well known in the xenaverse for her obsession with xena and remarkable resemblance to a young Lucy Lawless.
She enjoys travelling from state to state in Australia for various conventions and is one of several highly passionate Xena fans who have made their own Xena Movie Campaign, which already has over 12 000 supporters and continues to rapidly grow in numbers.
She is an avid collector of Xena: Warrior Princess props and hopes to attend her first Xena convention (which will also sadly be the last Offical Xena convention) in Burbank, Los Angeles in 2013.
“Xena has been and always will be a huge part of my life. She was a role model for me when I was younger and gave me the strength to battle through several tough situations I endured as a child. I’m now 24 years old and I still find the Warrior Princess helps me in my day to day battles; if I am ever unsure of a decision I always sit and ask myself “what would xena do?”.
"I think the show has a lot to offer people in terms of self-acceptance, self-discovery and relationships as well as the laughter and joy Xena and Gabrielle bring on their epic adventures across Ancient Greece and other ancient lands. Although the show has ceased over a decade ago, the fandom for the show is standing strong. I am merely one of several thousands of Xenites (as we like to call ourselves) worldwide. Xenites themselves are often seen a different breed of fandom, mainly due to their strong levels of enthusiasm for the show and for their loyalty and kindness toward a worthy cause or anyone in need. They are highly supportive and encouraging toward one another and often form friendships with others that will last a lifetime.”
Thanks to Kelly for taking the time for this blog!
