Why roller derby? Roller derby saved my soul. It only took one practice and I was hooked! This sport has been instrumental with enabling me to grow into a stronger, more confident, and independent person. Roller derby is physically and mentally demanding, a challenge I enjoy. Another perk with derby is that I now have an even larger family – plus friends in every city with a derby league. No matter what life obstacles occur, roller derby and my derby family have been there through thick and thin.
