Why did you pick that name?
I chose R2 because Star Wars is one the greatest creations since the dawn of mankind, and I chose R2-Beat-You because R2-D2 is such a key player in the movies but get very little attention.
Why did you pick that number?
I chose 1829 as my number because all though there are no sure records, Geronimo was born that year. Geronimo is my hero and represents the heart of a culture that was massacred throughout the 19th century and raped of their rights in the 19th century. Geronimo fought for his freedom and the freedom of his people. He took a strong stance against what he knew was wrong and proved to be not only a great medicine man but great leader and warrior. I strongly believe his death marked the death of the Native American Culture. It is because of Geronimo that I decided to study History and preserve my own Mexican Culture. Geronimo has helped shape the ideas and beliefs I hold today, and because of that I chose to honor him by taking his birthyear as my derby number.

What's your goal for next year?
I have several goals for next year. First to dramatically improve my skating and be able to skate as well as the vets on the team. I would also like to gain a deeper and more detailed understanding of the Game which im sure comes with time as well as study and practice. After I have reached those Goals, my ultimate goal would be to play Jammer. I would also love to get to know the other girls on the team that I have not had the opportunity to get to know on a deeper level. A non derby related goal is to stay on track with school and finish my Bachelors in History by mid 2012.
