When did you start playing Roller Derby?
I started playing ...after my tot group ended in...April of last year (2016).
What positions do you normally play/like to play?
I haven't played long enough yet to really know yet, but I like both jamming and blocking...being a pivot...not really.
What do you love about Roller Derby?
I love that anyone could do it if they really want to. And you get to learn from women of all walks of life...that's pretty awesome.
Favorite Roller Derby moment?
Passing my 27/5 and when my sister in law Bash joined.
Most embarrassing Roller Derby moment?
My first game, we were lined up waiting on a review, Thrill Murray nervously told the opposing team that it was my very first game. I was rocked for that jam...but got a congratulations too. So let's just say they were congratulatory hits.
What is one piece of advice you could give to newer girls or those who are thinking about joining Roller Derby?
Just do it. It takes some time, yes, but it's totally doable. Just stick with it.
What is one thing that Roller Derby/Dutchland helped you achieve?
Um...we shall return to this question in the future.
What has Roller Derby taught you?
That I prefer skating over walking. Haha. It's teaching me patience...we aren't all at the same skill level, but we are all learning and mostly getting along.
Anything you'd like to say to your adoring fans?
Hey. Hola. Bonjour. Guten tag. Ciao. Namaste.
