How did you get into derby? I started derby because my dad kept telling me there was this cool thing these girls were doing called roller derby. At the time I was just like ok whatever that sounds cool but I couldn't do that. Then I actually saw a bout and I really wanted to do that. I went to HRD'S website and tried out the bout camp and haven't stopped since.
How did you pick your derby name? I got my derby name from my nickname Milkshake. And I've been Milkshake since I was 12. Way before Kelis made the song!
Likes I love ice cream! Milkshakes! Animals. And roller skating of course.
