Just Roll with It...

PRESENTED ON JUN 07, 2016
IN BRYAN @ VOL 7

“I think something that attracts a lot of people to roller derby is the culture of it all, like you can create a whole new persona identity.” 

In Just Roll with it from PechaKucha Night Bryan Vol. 7, Roller Girl, “Jammin” Janet Vincent talks about her love of roller derby in this presentation. She was really shy when she moved from Costa Rica to US for college. Then her family members encouraged her to join the roller derby team, and she found out her passion of roller derby. Now she is attending the roller derby competitions around the world with her teammates.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, June 30th, 2016.
