How did you get into derby?
When I lived in California I knew someone who was in derby and I thought, wow, how cool! I didn't think I could do it because I had never played. Then we moved out here to Roselle and I saw a sign that said Derby tonight! When I got home I started to look into it and found Derby Lite, where they would teach you how to skate. While taking the classes I had an awesome instructor persuade me to try out for a team and I made it!

If we are talking about derby, it's my hips.
