1. When and how did you get started in derby?
I was looking for a new sport but coudn’t really find something that suited my personality. I used to be a figureskater on ice, but I was looking for a bigger challenge. After I saw an ad for RecAttack, I came across the website of Gent Go-Go Roller Girls and was hooked. A week later I started skating on quad skates.

2. What’s been your favourite derby moment?
My favorite derby moment was my firt bout. I was really nervous and insecure, but loved every moment of it. After a wile I didn’t want the feeling to stop.

3. Who are your derby heroes?
I’m a big fan of the Victorian Roller Derby League. Bicepsual can really kick some ass!!

4. How did you pick your derby name?
I haven’t got one jet.

5. What’s your worst injury?
I had an inflammation on both heels. I was out for more than a month 

6. What advice would you give to someone who would like to play derby?
I have never done another sport where I felt so welcome from the start. So don’t be afraid to take that firt step (our roll). The biginning is difficult, but never be ashamed and keep going. Train hard and become a warrior!

7. If I wasn’t playing derby, I’d be…
If I couldn’t skate anymore I would become an NSO or try tob e part of the Benchcrew. Those guys are awesome!
