Freak On Alicia
What is your skater name and number?
Freak On Alicia #010
What is the significance of your name and number?
My real name is Alicia, and my derby name is a play on the Korn song "Freak on a Leash". I'm not a big Korn fan, but the name definitely suits me!
As for my number, 010, well let's just say that's an inside joke. Feel free to ask me sometime!
What is your athletic background?
Sadly, not much. Some swimming, some track, some volley ball. I skated a bunch as a kid (think Barbie skates), but pretty much stopped when I was a teenager.
What do you enjoy during your downtime? Outside interests?
I love, love, love karaoke. I can often been found rapping my heart out to Weird Al's "White & Nerdy" or singing the Ting Ting's "That's Not My Name" in the sultry style of William Shatner. I also enjoy hiking & just generally being outside on sunny days.
Are there any life lessons that you’ve learned playing roller derby?
You will fall, you will get hurt, you will heal, and you WILL get back up. Don't be afraid to ask for help, that's what your blockers (and your friends!) are for. Oh, and HYDRATE! You think far more clearly when you've been drinking water.
Dislikes? What drives you crazy?
When people chew on their mouthguards. Especially when I'm watching hockey.
What is your hometown?
Long Beach, Ca
What is your motto, favorite quotes, or words to live by?
Nothing beats a fail but a try.
#YGDA- You're Gonna Die Anyway
What are the top 3 items on your bucket list?
I don't have a bucket list anymore. The only 2 things I had were to meet my dad & to shave my head; I've now done both of those things!
