Tell us about your name
I'm first generation Cuban and wanted to pay homage to my heritage. Havana Club is the national rum of Cuba and La Giraldilla is plastered on every bottle, bus, and newspaper in Cuba. It's even permanently inked on my arm!
What position do you play? What are your derby goals?
Blocker. The only goal I have is to hit people.
What inspires you on the track?
Bruises are the only inspiration I need.
What is your favorite derby memory?
I have a permanent memory burn from when Krissy Krash gave me a peg-assist off the jam line in a scrimmage. The pack watches in awe as I glided to new heights. I believed I could have touched the sky. I think about it every night and day. Oh, to spread my wings and fly away again.
