Camaraderie, jam skating and representation in the roller derby community.

"It doesn't matter where you come from, or where you live, or who you are. It's just us bonding over skating."

For our latest episode of Be You, we met 21-year-old fashion design student and roller skater Sailor Gonzales. We spent a day with the Los Angeles native, following along as she visited her favorite places in the city.

Our first stop was the ever-popular skate shop, Moxi Roller Skates, in Long Beach, where Sailor works. She knows how to repair every type of skate, and even designs some of the accessories that are sold at the shop. After work we stopped by The Rock, her favorite skate park, where she often finishes her day dancing and skating with friends.
