Viewtiful Joz – Shipyard Sirens

I put roller skates on for the very first time less than a year ago…. And in that short time I already can’t imagine my life without them.

I’ve always thought roller derby was so bad ass and never in a million years did I think I could be involved with it.  And here I am today, about to play in my very first bout in just a few short days!  Not only has this sport changed me into a stronger, healthier, and more determined person… It’s showed me a beautiful group of people that have made this adventure even more amazing. It’s like a big family that I couldn’t be happier to be a part of.  I wish I could thank everyone a million times for all their kindness and encouragement, because without all of that I wouldn’t be here at all.

Special big thank-yous to Hammer and all the Blacks Harbour girls for making this all possible for me. Words couldn’t express how much you all mean to me!!

And also to this amazing team that has been putting up with me, supporting, teaching, and showing me an entire new love that I didn’t know existed.

Thank you

Sirens Team
