I started in February 2010 with the Twin City Derby Girls in Champaign Urbana, IL.
I joined derby initially because the punk rock/rebellious culture surrounding it really appealed to me. I stayed because of the athleticism and the amazing, diverse, supportive group of women it comprises.
I love roller derby for so many reasons, but at the top of the list is that I get to hang out with an amazing and diverse group of women from all different walks of life.
