Why did you start roller derby?
Roller Derby had always appealed to me because of the athleticism and uniqueness of the sport. When I moved to Birmingham I thought it would be a great way to meet people and stay in shape. It has since been all of that and so much more! I went out for recruitment in January 2016 and the rest is history!
