How did you discover the Blacksnake Rollergirls?
“I discovered BRG through my sister, Lucy Brawler. She always wanted me to play and she asked if I wanted to try it out.”
Explain the origin of your derby name.
“My derby name is originated from The Karate Kid. It was “Cady Did-It” for a week, and obviously it didn’t stick. Lucy suggested this name and it was perfect! The whole league called me Kid anyway since I was the youngest in the league at the time.”
Who inspires you on the track?
“Everyone inspires me on the track. Every woman in this league has a special talent and they all inspire me to learn more and constantly strive to be better. I love every Blacksnake, coach, ref, and skater.”
How has roller derby changed your life?
“Roller derby gave me an outlet to get away from all of the life things that happen. BRG is a big second family that I couldn’t imagine NOT having in my life. They make me laugh, cry, and brighten my day when I’m having a really bad one.”
What is it about roller derby that brings out the best in The Kadydid Kid?
“BRG makes me want to be the best I can be, on the track and off. These girls are nurses, military men and women, computer nerds, and so many greater things than just the ones we come in contact with on a daily basis. It helps me keep going through school and they inspire me to be great in life. They are a great support system and I am so proud to be a Blacksnake!”
