November’s Member of the Month: Moonie Sweets!

Have you met Moonie Sweets yet? This is her first full year on Suburban Brawl and she’s certainly made an impact as one of our top jammers. She brings a positive attitude and a great big smile to every practice and bout. Learn more about her below!

Who are you?
I am Moonie Sweets.

How long have you been involved with roller derby?
I have been playing derby at SRD and only SRD since October of 2016. It’s my first and only team.

Why did you start playing roller derby?
I first joined to help with my depression and spend more time with my sister after our brother passed.

Why do you continue to play roller derby?
I continue to play derby because it’s something I can use as an outlet. It’s somewhere you make friends and a place to have a good time.

What’s your proudest derby moment?
My proudest derby moment was my very first jam back when I was on the Bullies. My sister was the coach at the time and to hear her cheer me on from the sidelines is one of the greatest moments in my derby career.

What do you do outside of derby?
Outside of derby I am a full time veterinary technician who works crazy hours and loves to watch movies and eat!
