My name is Kayla, also known as Sharky. In 2018 I was invited to a doubleheader game by a friend which was a lot of fun. I saw a recruitment flyer and was interested. I was looking for ways to exercise and meet new people. Despite having no prior skating experience and doubtful at first, my perception changed in 2019 when I decided to give it a try.
I instantly fell in love with roller derby. This sport has transformed my life in countless ways, positively impacting my physical, emotional, and mental well-being. What’s more, I have found a second family within the roller derby community. I cannot imagine life without their presence.
I have gained strength, courage, and invaluable life lessons. The bond and connection I share with my teammates is truly unparalleled. My roller derby journey has been a catalyst for personal growth and has enriched my life in ways I never thought possible.
