I started my derby adventure last year in December. It has been so amazing learning to play this epic sport and to meet all these wonderful people. There is so much more to roller derby than I realized. Like picking a derby name. I didn’t think it would be so difficult, but it’s so important because it becomes who you are. I had a list of names but I narrowed it down to Dovahkill! It is a reference to a video game called Skyrim. Dovahkiin means Dragonborn and dragons are awesome! I’m so happy that I have SFV Roller Derby! I have met so many different, interesting, talented, and hilarious people here. They make me a better person! It’s so wonderful having such a huge family instantly! I can’t wait to get on the track and hip check another derby family with them!
