How long have you been skating?
I started skating in November 2014 just after my 8th birthday.

How did you start playing roller derby?
My friend Ellie (Ellie Gator) talked about derby all the time at school. So me and my family went to one of her junior bouts. After the bout she told me that I had to join. It looked like fun so I decided to join.

What position do you play or enjoy the most?
We get to play all the positions in a bout but I really enjoy being the Jammer the most because I like trying to get through the pack and score lots of points.

What do you love best about roller derby?
I just love being able to skate around with my friends. I really love two on two racing in practice. I like to win!

What do your school friends and family think of you playing roller derby?
My school friends think it's really really cool and would like to join. My family encourages me to have fun and do my best.

What would you tell other girls/kids if they asked you about roller derby?
I'd tell them that it's really fun and hard work, but it's all worth it. I'd tell them to join our team The Gnarlies.
