I learned about roller derby when I saw a TCDS recruit night on Facebook. I went to my first bout to see if this was something I wanted to pursue and instantly fell in love with the idea. I joined TCDS because the Siren I met that night was so reassuring and full of energy. Before I left, she said to me “See you Tuesday!” and I felt like I couldn’t let her down. it was hard for a while since I had never skated on quads before, but I made a promise to myself that I would stick it out no matter what.
This team has brought to me a true sense of belonging. I’ve gained a group of sisters that cheer you on when you’re down and help you in any way they can. I’ve also gained some pride in myself. We’ve made some amazing memories along the way. Truly a life-changing experience.
