Madam Muerta #1102-April’s Featured Skater

DJRD Madame Muerta #1102

Our April Featured Skater is all smiles on the track – even when she is giving someone a powerful block, and for that we love her! Madame Muerta is a Dirty Jersey Blocker as well as a board trustee.

What made you start derby?

I wanted to play roller derby since I was a little kid, but I didn’t know of any local derby teams until a couple of years ago, so when I found one, I decided to give it a shot.

What was the hardest part of passing your minimum skills test?

The hardest thing for me to pass was and is, jumping. I sprained my ankle practicing for that part of the test, and even though I can do it, it is still a mental challenge for me.

What was your first bout like?

I felt like I was going to have a panic attack before it started, since I had never played a team sport before, but by halftime I was just super excited to actually be playing.

How long have you been playing derby?

2 years.

What is your favorite part about derby?

I love to skate, it makes me happy.

What is your least favorite part?

When I get mad at myself for having a bad practice.

What is your derby goal for next year?

I would like to become a more agile blocker.

What do you do for a living?

I am an Art Teacher.

How old are you?


What are you interests outside of derby?

I like to spend time with my family and paint.
