CHAPEL HILL, North Carolina (WTVD) — As the Tar Heels chase a championship, one devoted fan is getting a lot of attention for how she cheers on her team.
Chances are, if you’ve been to a UNC home football or basketball game in the last two years, Alex Koszeghy’s caught your eye. The senior, better known as Glitter Girl, attends the games, usually on the front row of the student section, with her body covered in Carolina blue glitter.
“I always just apologize to people around me,” said Koszeghy with a big smile on her face, a pair of blue glittered striped down the left side of her face. “I’m like, I’m gonna shed on you. You will have glitter on you by the end. I’m sorry!”
What started as an item on the undergrad’s bucket list, showing her school spirit in such a bright, unique way, quickly evolved into a persona of its own. Glitter Girl took off on social media, and with Glitter Girl beloved by fellow Tar Heels fans, came confidence Koszeghy never had before.
“You would never know what it took to get here,” she said.
