Biography

Being a teenager, I have often found myself looking for a place where I belong and am accepted. By joining Roller Derby, I can honestly say that I have found that place. I’d say that I’m pretty alternative, making me normally the odd ball of the crowd–but here I’m just a normal person, which makes it easy to fit in. I joined Derby in February 2012 not knowing how to skate at all. For a while every practice was a challenge to simply skate a lap around the track. Even though I would get frustrated at times I never gave up because of my awesome coaches and their encouragement. I eventually managed to overcome those obstacles and finally make it to team level a year later. So no matter what struggles life hits you in the face with (literally) you just have to strap your skates on tight and keep moving forward!
