When did you start playing Roller Derby?
I joined the tot program in January 2015 & became a league member in May.
What positions do you normally play/like to play?
Jammer!
What do you love about Roller Derby?
Derby is a really great outlet. I'm a pretty laid back person in every day life so it's awesome to come the derby and get to be an aggressive person.
Favorite Roller Derby moment?
I was an alternate for the Blitz a few months ago. It was a really tough bout against a really good team. I felt really discouraged with my performance, but afterwards I was told I had a 16 point jam. So that was pretty awesome.
Most embarrassing Roller Derby moment?
After each bout when I see pictures of the face I make when I'm jamming.
What is one piece of advice you could give to newer girls or those who are thinking about joining Roller Derby?
Don't make excuses! Just do it! I almost didn't go to recruitment night because I kept telling myself I didn't have enough time. I haven't regretted joining once.
What is one thing that Roller Derby/Dutchland helped you achieve?
Derby has definitely boosted my self confidence.
What has Roller Derby taught you?
Discipline and dedication to myself and my team.
