When did you join roller derby? I joined derby, and Free State, on July 15 2016!
What brought you to Free State? After my parents moved to Texas, I was really lonely. I needed a sense of family, and something to do. I was lucky to find both with my fellow Suzillains!
How did you find Free State? I think Facebook? And then through Google Maps.
Which leagues/teams are you affiliated with? (e.g. Suzies, Villains, Team Maryland, DCRG, CCRG, etc)
Suzies and Team India
Are you a member of any committees or have off-skates roles?
I'm the former Sponsorship Coordinator!
Do you have a skating/athletic background?
I used to like to rollerblade in my neighborhood as a kid, but I had never really been known for my fabulous athleticism before...
Likes: dogs, tattoos, the color pink, glitter, Nutella, baths, and napping in soft blankets.
Dislikes: the smell of patchouli, wine, food with bones in it, Game of Thrones (DON'T @ ME!), vuvuzelas, scallops, or broken cookies.
What is your Non-Derby-Related job? I'm an administrative professional.
Pre-Bout ritual: I listen to a podcast, get dressed, do my makeup, and go on my way! I'm really boring about this.
Signature move: I'm known for my shoulder hits, I'd say.
Roller Derby hero: Peacewar. I aspire to be like her because she is amazing.
