A Parksville Ballenas Secondary School student surely didn’t think so many people would be interested in her yearbook quote, but her photo with the text beside it has gone viral.

Grade 12 student Megan Kelly told CHEK News “the yearbook quote was due that day, I didn’t have anything inspirational to write, so I just thought ‘hey, I’ll just put some Harry Potter down’.”

She then handed it in and thought no more of it.

The quote reads ‘Master has given Megan a high school diploma. Megan is freeeee!’

This is a quote adapted from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, when Harry gives Dobby the Elf a sock hidden in a book, and sets him free from servitude of the Malfoys.

Kelly posted her version on her Tumblr blog, and then it was shared on Reddit and Imgur.

It has been viewed more than one million times.

“I kind of wanted it to be humorous for people almost, for people who knew Harry Potter they would get it,” Kelly told CHEK.

Kelly said the fact that it’s gone viral is all just a fluke, and she’s just a big Harry Potter fan.
