Just Because She's Smiling Doesn't Mean She's Not Plotting

Derby Name: GiggleHertz

Derby Number: 789

How did you choose your name and number: 
I am a math and physics nerd!  I wanted my name to be related some physics; playing off gigahertz and the fact that I giggle... a lot!  I wanted a math joke for my number.  Why is 6 afraid of 7?? Me!!!

When did you join derby:
January 15, 2012

Favorite derby memory:
My favorite derby memory... I can't pick just one!  
a) having my Mom and Dad at my first game!  I am so glad they were able to see me play... even if I wasn't entirely sure what was going on 100% of the time
b) all those moments when as a jammer there is a hole that I can escape through!  Especially if I get lead!

How has derby positively affected you:
Derby gives me confidence!  And showed me I'm not some wimpy girl.  Now when life pulls me down I just get right back up and keep on going.

Favorite quote:
"The biggest human temptation is to settle for too little" - Thomas Merton

Anything else we should know:
And I love having a derby family, these ladies are amazing and every time I get to skate with them makes me happy.
