It’s September baby! Did we mention that we have been running as a league for 1 year now! We have made it this far despite our trials and tribulations and we are still going strong! Woot!
For our September Chilli Padi, we got ourselves a young and energetic grrrl who is making her way to be a kick-ass Jammer. She is fast and she jets around like a super speed rocket! Get to know this pretty lady right here!
Derby Name: Julz Jet! Derby Number: 13
Tell Us About Yourself:
Oh boy, I’m never good at these, but I’ll try. I guess I can say I’m indecipherable. Oh and I can get pretty competitive sometimes. I really like cats too. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was about 10, so I guess the “hyperactive” part is a plus for me being in derby and all.
Why That Derby Name?
I guess I’m one of the few who can skate pretty fast! The grrrls are always shouting at me to slow down when we’re skating in a pack… my bad!
What Made You Join Roller Derby?
Well I was told by a friend that there was a derby league in Singapore, so I thought, “Why not?”. I remembered watching Whip It and thinking that the whole sport was pretty rad. I’m glad I joined.
What Do You Do Outside Roller Derby?
Living a student life in an arts school (NAFA). Always swamped with assignments, but I’m always trying my best to make time for practices!
What’s Your Other Hobbies/Interest?
I’m the most artsy in my family. I take an interest in photography, music, and art. I catch on quick in things like this, but it only works with things I’m interested in.
What Would Be Your Roller Derby Soundtrack?
How Has Roller Derby Benefited You?
I got to meet girls that I could actually click with, that is pretty awesome. I’m always pushing myself to be better at whatever I can do now too.
Worst Thing About Derby?
The guards we have to wear, stinking up my bag!
