Remember Star Wars Katie? The young girl bullied by peers at school for liking the sci-fi saga simply because she was a girl? She made a splash online thanks to a blog written by her mother Carrie Goldman, who has since gone on to write a book on bullying called “Bullied: What Every Parent, Teacher, and Kid Needs to Know About Ending the Cycle of Fear.” We had a nice update on Katie late last year and she of course, continued to be awesome, but there’s a new chapter to be told. See, Katie wanted to be a Stormtrooper for Halloween this year and the 501st Legion made it happen.
