REBELLIOUS MOOSE #64

Moose has been my nickname since middle school. I wanted to keep this name for roller derby since I was already accustomed to responding to it. "Rebellious" is just me being punk-rock.

I am a blocker and occasional pivot. Lately, I have been trying to learn new moves and get out of my comfort zone in order to reach my next derby goal: to make it on Team México for the Roller Derby World Cup next year. It's all I've been thinking about and I want to represent my parents' home country.

I'm inspired seeing everyone's progress on the track. I get so jolly when I see people trying new things then mastering them, whether they're Freshies or OMGs!

My favorite derby memory is the first time I heard the jammer say the words, "Someone, sit on Moose!" It was the first time I ever felt like I was actually playing roller derby effectively.
