When did you start playing Roller Derby?
I started the Tot program January 2013 and passed my assessments August 2013.
Best Position?
I'm a blocker. It's nice to know my big booty is good for something such as blocking!
What do you love about Roller Derby?
I love that anyone can participate no matter what your size, age or skill is. It's a very empowering sport that just makes you feel good about yourself. Derby encourages you to be healthy and helps you develop a positive body image.
What do you love about Dutchland?
I love the camaraderie among my teammates. We all encourage one another to be the best we can be. It's like one HUGE family!
Favorite Roller Derby moment?
I think my favorite moment was playing in my 1st home bout in Oct 2013 and hearing my name announced during the introductions and just being like "WOW! I can't believe I've made it this far! And I'm actually playing!!!"
Most embarrassing Roller Derby moment?
Also during my 1st home bout I got released from the box only to end up cutting track and getting sent right back in. Rookie mistake!
Dutchland's 2014 season is about to get into full swing here in March. What are you looking forward to in the next few bouts?
I look forward to kicking butt! This will be my 1st full season! I can't wait to play against new teams and gain experience and become a better all-around skater!
What is one piece of advice you could give to newer girls or those who are thinking about joining Roller Derby?
JUST DO IT!!! And stick with it. It's gonna be hard work but trust me it's worth it!!
What is one thing that Roller Derby/Dutchland helped you achieve? (ie: great work outs, friendship, confidence)
This is probably the healthiest I've been in a long time and probably the happiest I've been! I have the most amazing friends because of derby, so health, happiness and solid friendships!
What has Roller Derby taught you?
I learned that anything you put your blood, sweat and tears into will pay off in the end. Oh and heart you have to put your heart into it too!
Anything you'd like to say to your adoring fans?
Thanks for all the love and support!! XXOO
