By Trixie, Age 10
My name is Beatrix but you can call me Trixie. I turned eight in December. Covid started soon after. I got covid in February around the 14th, and then quarantine started. Second grade was awesome! In summer of 2020, my best friend’s dad finally got a job in…Israel. He couldn’t find a job in Oregon because of covid. That means they HAD to move to Israel, but at least we got to have a huge camp-over in their backyard before saying goodbye.
During quarantine, my mom convinced me one Sunday to go to a different school online. On Monday, I said bye to my class and my teacher. On Tuesday, I went to the new school and it was awesome!
Now I’m ten, quarantine is over, and I found my passion: roller derby at Rose City Rollers. Roller derby is a girl and gender neutral sport. Sorry boys! But if you boys change to they/them or she/her pronouns you can do roller derby. But just a small warning: Be careful of getting injured!
