My name is Hermione Jean Granger. I was sorted into Gryffindor, and my patronus is an otter. My parents are Muggles, making me Muggle-Born. They took it surprisingly well when they found out I was a witch. I began to teach myself simple spells and facts at age 9 and 10, before I started Hogwarts at age 11. I hope to do some good in the world.
