How did you get into derby?
Tank, of JSRG, invited me to a game at Asbury Park Convention Center. Being new to Jersey and seeing an intense sport, I had to join immediately. Then my addiction began after being derpy for a 2 years.

Any advice for people just starting up?
Make sure to get a mentor. You are going to get a lot advise from all different directions, and all of it might not pertain to you. Get you someone that can make you get to the next level.

What is something that makes you proud to be a part of the derby community?
When a homegrown sport can evolve into what it is today, worldwide and televised, I love that I could witness it. I am a fan, but also a part of the evolution.

What is your funniest derby memory?
Being on a traveling sports team was new for me, but I took it with a grain of salt. Until the after parties. In one season, I bonded with my team by getting to know the other team members over drinks, hopping in water fountains, and losing most of clothing.

What is one thing you would change about derby?
Since the sport is full of the underrepresented, all voices that are usually quieter are loud. I want to see more voices not only louder but more focused.
