What is your skater name and number?
Party Poison #723
What is the significance of your name and number?
Anyone who has talked to me for more than ten minutes will find out that I am a huge My Chemical Romance fan. After months of talking on the official fan club forum, I decided on the song Party Poison as my name. Keeping with the MCR theme, my number stands for July 23 (2002) when their first cd was released and what us fans call "International My Chemical Romance Day"
What is your athletic background?
I was very active in middle school and the beginning of high school. Volleyball, basketball, track & field, cheerleading, and dance team. Although my biggest accomplishment was lettering in varsity football my freshman year of high school and I was the only girl on the team!
What do you enjoy during your downtime? Outside interests?
I am very much into live music and am a big supporter of the local scene. If I am not at a team practice on the weekend, then I am usually downtown at a show.
Are there any life lessons that you’ve learned playing roller derby?
That anything is possible if you have the drive. I could barely skate when I came to try outs and crossovers took me three months to learn. I was always the slowest and clumsiest on the track. But, I really wanted this and with that and the help of my fellow skaters I'm in my second season of bouting.
Dislikes? What drives you crazy?
Flakes! If you say you're going to come to a game, then come to a game.
What is your hometown?
I'm from Honolulu, Hawaii but I have been living in Vegas for 15 years. I like to say I was raised in Hawaii but grew up in Vegas.
What is your motto, favorite quotes, or words to live by?
My motto is a My Chemical Romance song (surprise, surprise) called Give 'Em Hell, Kid. I have been applying it to everything. School, work, life, and now, derby!
What are the top 3 items on your bucket list?
Make travel team, move to New York, and meet the Backstreet Boys.
