Skater Bio: Growing up I was both weedy and clumsy. I hated exercise and avoided sport as much as possible. So, when I proudly announced to friends and family that I was planning to join a Roller Derby team, the laughter was understandable. I laughed too. We all laughed. Then I threw up in my mouth a little bit and signed up for the thing.
And who’s laughing now? Probably still them, but now the laughter is laced with respect. Probably...
I’m not laughing – it makes me gag on my mouth-guard. I do have an awful lot of happy though. Roller Derby has contributed to a lot of that.
Favourite Position: Phrasing! Jamming is my absolute favourite, not many things compare to the feelings it gives me <3
Worst Injury: I fell onto my thumb and chipped a big-ass bit of bone away from it. I give this an injury rating of three thumbs up.
Proudest Derby Moment: Being rostered as a Jammer for my first ever Champs game, and being able to officially skate alongside my Team mates.
Started Skating: It all began with Fresh Meat, August 2016.
Song To Skate To: ‘Yeah Yeah’ by Bodyrox & Luciana.
Alter Ego: Writer, book devourer, logophile, tea drinker, cat enthusiast, dancefloor tearer, cartoon-faced vegan night-dweller, minion to the eyebrow overlords.
