About Nica:

Aloha kākou! I got my first pair of skates for Christmas in 2016 and instantly loved skating back and forth in my house. But it wasn't until I internet stalked Havoc and she taught me how to drop in and stop (and gave me my first real skate pads right off her body), that I really became addicted. To me, roller skating is freedom and joy; it makes me feel alive. When I put on my skates, I feel all the problems in my life roll away and I can't stop smiling! My roller skating journey has connected me with some of the most amazing people I've ever met.

Special thanks to my family for their unconditional love and support, Newt for buying me my first pair of roller skates, Olivia for showing me where my death is, and Havoc for teaching me how to drop in, stop, do spine transfers, rail slides, carve bowls, and that each wheel gets two bearings instead of just one. I'm excited to see where my journey takes me and I'm incredibly honored to be part of such an amazing skate team.
