How did you come up with your derby name? Does it have any meaning?

Originally, I just wanted to be RockHit.  So when we volunteered for the Oasis Center for Women and Girls, Girls Can Do Anything Camp, some of the girls told me I should change my name to Candy Rainbow.  I told them I would think about it and when one of the girls called me Rainbow… I couldn’t resist.  So I added Rainbow to RockHit, and became Rainbow RockHit.  I have a soft spot in my heart for the Girls Can Do Anything Camp!

 

How did you get involved in roller derby? How did you wind up with TRG?

I started with TRG as the DJ for games.  In 2015, I had decided to make it a year where I would focus on myself.  I always had a pull to try Roller Derby and when I realized that the only thing that was keeping me from joining was fear, I decided that I wasn’t going to let fear determine my life path.  So I jumped in head first.  I don’t regret it for one second.

 

What do you do outside of derby?

I work at the PACE Center for Girls as the Office Manager, I occasionally DJ events, I am a Drag King, and I recently started a Pet Photography business, ABJames Pet Photography.

 

Likes? (Anything, derby or just in general)

I love a good adventure, music, culture, dancing, traveling, meeting new people, art, classic cars, and anything related to being creative.

 

Dislikes? (Anything, derby or just in general)

I pretty much dislike negativity…. and capers.  Bleck!

 

Why is TRG (or roller derby) important to you?

Being a part of TRG is important to me because it feeds my soul and keeps me healthy; physically, emotionally, and mentally.  I feel like our team is my extended family.  They are supportive and caring.  TRG reminds me that life happens outside of my comfort zone.  #NeverForget #TallyRG #DerbyForLife
