Sangre Junipero #87
"Hell is a Place on Earth"
Hometown: Bilbao, Spain
Derby Position: Blocker
Did you play other sports previously?
Nope! I've always been the type to rollerblade by the beach/lake dancing to my music every afternoon, but I never felt like I wanted to play any team sports. I always had derby in mind, but lived in places where it wasn't possible, always sounded like it would be my thing tho.
What's the story behind your derby name?
There's a really gay Black Mirror episode called San Junipero that captured my heart. I thought about how I could make a baddass reference to it, and then Sangre Junipero was born. "Sangre" means blood in Spanish, so there's the gruesome part and a reference to my Spanish background, and Junipero has a nice ring to it as well. But you can call me June (;
Why The Outfit?
I had just come back from studying abroad in Italy in August and the Outfit's Bootcamp started in September, so it was perfect timing. After attending bootcamp for the first time I knew the Outfit's where I belonged. Everyone's such an inspiration. I figured if I stuck around them long enough, some of their awesomeness would rub off on me.
What's your "pump up" song?
MUNA's I Know A Place :D
If you were a gangster, what would your calling card be?
Random fact about you?
I've had braces for 9 years and counting, like teeth-braces. Long story, but feel free to ask me about it!
