Red Velvet #18
Where did your derby name come from?
I love all things red velvet, especially cake, and my hair is red!
Hometown and current town:
How long have you been skating?
I first put derby skates on in 2014, and I tried to skate whenever I could (mostly in my kitchen) until I got to do Fitness Skate at the Mid-Coast Recreation Center for a couple months every summer. But I've been skating for derby for a year.
Why do you play?
Because it's fun, challenging, empowering. It's the best way to exercise, in my opinion. For my team, because they're the best and I love skating with them every week. I've never felt so sure about doing something as I have with skating and roller derby. Also, because it's the best!
What's a great song to skate to?
Dancing Queen by ABBA, of course.
What's your favorite derby memory?
Probably watching the 2017 WFTDA championships in person!
What's your favorite Coastal Chaos memory?
Does pineapple belong on pizza?
