Derby #: 714
Derby date of birth: November, 2014
Athletic background: Not really any athletic back ground unless you count growing up with two older brothers which is where my alter ego TaraWrist emerged from as it was one of my childhood nick names.
Likes and Interests: I Love spending time with family and friends, cheering my children on as they dance, flip, tumble and kick butt. I enjoy hosting parties and rocking out at cool concerts. Also enjoy sunshine and outdoor activities, mostly swimming and sun tanning.
Dislikes: Tardiness and lack of proper manners. Quitting something you start. Not taking responsibility for your actions. Oh, and the way my derby gear smells if I forget to air it out!
Why derby: It looked fun and challenging and I just realized one day I wanted to be part of the team. I was jealous of how awesome these women are and decided I wanted to be them instead of being jealous. Since joining I’ve fallen in love with the sport. The entire derby community is filled with women building other women up and so much love and encouragement.
Derby goals: I feel like I constantly have new goals to reach in the world of skating and probably always will. This year however, I’ve been trying to apply the building up of others in my life off the skates. I am trying to take the same encouragement and positive output and apply it to everyone.
