I was a new kind in town, “fresh off the farm” and really in need of some friends. Most women would probably look for a book club or something (?right? idk), but that’s not really my style. I had been in this city almost 2 months and was HATING my life. Then I started Derby Por Vida at LADD. It was my first time on quad skates and I fell on the crack in the floor, but I got up … with some help from my friends :) From then on, I knew these were my people. And the first time I hip checked someone, I knew this was my sport.
