Name Le Tigre
Years Skated 1 year
Athletic Background I was a cheerleader in high school for three years.
Fun Facts My skater number is my grandmother's birthday-she is my favorite lady in the world and I like to think that it brings me good luck every time I put my skates on.
My derby name, Le Tigre, comes from the band that was popular in the late 90s-early 2000s. They were a huge part of the Riot grrrl movement in the 90s that focused on female empowerment, politics, and activism among other things. I'm proud to wear a name on my back that is such a strong proponent of feminism...because isn't that what this sport is all about? Girls kick the most butt!
I have an unhealthy obsession with cats and kittens. UNHEALTHY. meow.
