Toronto Roller Derby All Star Team
I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. I'm a member at the First Narayever Synagogue, and have been attending services there since I was 6 years old. I had my Bat Mitzvah there. Currently, I am a lawyer working for the Ontario Public Service Employees Union as a Grievance Officer. But I am also a roller derby player. I discovered this incredible sport in 2013 and have been playing competitively ever since. Right now I play with Toronto Roller Derby, with their All-Star team, and on a home team. And in September 2019 I got the amazing opportunity to join a team of roller derby skaters made up of Jews from all over the world. I submitted an application and made it onto the team, and in November 2019 I participated in the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Championships in Montreal as a member of Team Jewish Roller Derby as we played against Team Indigenous Rising Roller Derby for what was billed as WE ARE NATION: A Game Without Borders.
