EMILY REACTS #43
Name: Emily Reacts #43
How long have you been playing? : Since February 2012
What inspired you to start playing? : I wanted to play a sport where I could hit people and not feel bad about it. I also wanted to learn to rollerskate so roller derby seemed like the perfect combination!
How did you get your derby name? : I'm a chemist - I react both on and off the track ;)
What's been your favourite derby moment so far? : I have so many. My favourite on-track moment was probably the time I was on track solo (my teammates all being in the penalty box) - I took on 3 opposition blockers, managed to knock their jammer off the track and recycle them back by myself! :) Off-track I think seeing last year's Freshmeat graduate was a highlight for me.
What do you love most about SRG? : They are my family. I love to see us all working together and encouraging each other to get better. That and the fact we can talk about literally anything without anyone batting an eyelid.
What do you do when you're not skating? : Talk about roller derby, do lots of roller derby admin and eat all of the vegan food.
If you had your very own skate-out tune, what would it be? Something explosive, with confetti cannons and lasers for entertainment.
