"Hi! I’m Ella Niederreiter and I’m in the Omega class, and I joined in the winter quarter of 2022. I’ve met a lot of amazing people in my short time here in PSP, and I’m so glad I initiated! Phi Sigma Pi has definitely eased the transition from online back to in person classes, and has made school more enjoyable for me.
Here is a picture of me in my roller derby gear with my mom, who’s a referee, from my last bout as a part of the junior team in Visalia, the V-Town Derby Delinquents. I aged out of the junior team after this, and got to play my first and last bout as a member of the adult team, the V-Town Derby Darlings, right before Covid-19 hit. I am on a team in Sacramento now, and we will start to play in bouts soon! If I didn’t join PSP and have it end up wonderfully like it did, I would never have tried to play derby again and make the team. PSP has given me bravery and self confidence, in addition to great friendships with people who lift me up!"
