Biography: Alba Rosa Reyes was born on June 1, 1998 in Kingman as the first child of Hector and Ana Reyes. She has two younger siblings, Carlos (age 8), and Sofia (age 6). Hector works as a line cook for a small restaurant, while Ana works as a housekeeper. Because of her parents jobs, they are often out of the house for most of the day, leaving Alba to look after Carlos and Sofia at times. The family lives in a lower class neighborhood in Kingman.
Albas early life was one that was normal, although a bit difficult. Because of her parents work hours, Alba was often left in the care of her relatives. She spent a lot of time playing with her cousins, although she was often a bit more desperate for attention from her parents. Ana and Hector did try to give her as much attention as they could, so Alba at least felt like her parents did care when they were around.
Alba was always an energetic and tomboyish kid growing up. She liked to play outdoors and run around. Alba could be a bit reckless at times, ending up with a few cuts and scrapes, but she was never really too worried about getting hurt when playing around. Ana thought it would be better if Alba channeled her energy into a specific sport. When Alba was six, she found the sport she really loved: golf.
Albas uncle took her and her cousins to a mini golf course, and Alba fell in love with the sport. She liked the competitive aspect of golf and trying to hit a ball as far as she could on a driving range. She thought it was difficult at first, but soon started getting into the groove of the game. Seeing how much she loved the game, her mother signed her up for courses at a local driving range. Alba would go there on weekends and practice the game for hours. Alba would continue to practice at the range throughout elementary school.
Albas early academic career was pretty event free. Alba did have some trouble keeping focused in class. Her grades tended to be on the average side, with Alba being a lot more interested in P.E. and elective courses compared to her main courses. Alba also started to make a few friends in elementary school. To most of her friends, Alba is a wild and energetic individual, who doesnt often think things through and could be a bit dense at time, but is always friendly and easy to talk to. However, her energetic personality would also alienate some people, since shed come off as fairly loud and annoying to them. Alba never really had issues with her peers who disliked her, mostly since she didnt notice and simply brushed off any criticism she received.
Around the time she started middle school, Alba also began to take golf a lot more seriously and tried competing in junior competitions. She had her range of successes and failures, placing at some competitions while losing at others. Because of this, Alba started to look at alternative careers in case she wasnt able to play golf professionally.
After a visit to a local animal shelter when she was 12 as part of a class trip, Alba began to realize how much she cared about taking care of animals. She was always fond of animals growing up, reading books on animals and biology. Alba decided that she wanted to learn more about animals and maybe become a veterinarian when she got older. Alba loves the idea of working with and taking care of animals, so she decided becoming a verterinarian was the best option for her. Because of this, she started to pay a lot more attention to her studies, particularly science class. She did get better grades because of this.
Once she entered high school, Alba charged through with accomplishing her goals. She joined the golf team her first year and dedicated herself to the team. She would practice with them at nearby golf courses and driving ranges and tried to befriend the members of the team. Shes known for being a spirited member on the team, trying to help her teammates get better and offering encouragement.
It was also in high school that Alba got involved with roller derby. She saw some of her classmates practicing and wanted to join since she thought the sport looked exciting and different. Alba had roller skated a bit when she was younger, but had to learn how to use roller blades and practice extensively to get good enough for the team. Albas nickname when competing is Reina Roja, or Red Queen. Alba tries to balance her roller derby practice with golf practice, although she tends to put more effort into golf than roller derby since shes more interested in pursuing a career as a professional golf player.
Alba also started to volunteer more at the animal shelter. She tends to come by twice a week in order to do various jobs around the shelter. She also began to rescue more animals if she could. If she spotted a stray animal, shed try to catch it without hurting herself or the animal and take it to the shelter. Alba would spend more time at the center if she wasnt spending so much time with her other activities, so she tries to make the most of her time there so that she can leave the center feeling accomplished. Whenever she feels she hasnt made enough of a contribution, she tends to worry that shes not working as hard as she could and feels guilty about her laziness. She usually has to reassure herself that shes doing well for her time, but sometimes she feels unaccomplished and gets a bit morose.
Most of Albas friends in high school are athletic girls involved in the same clubs as her. To most of her friends, she comes off as happy and excitable, but occasionally a bit dim. Shes very loyal to her friends and likes to hang out with them when she can. It was also in high school that Alba started to really pay attention to guys around her. Alba started to worry that she was too tomboyish for guys to like her and started to work on her social life. She started to chat with a lot more guys than she did in elementary and middle school, and tried to make herself more appealing to them. Her idea was to be slightly flirty with guys while also trying to make herself seem like someone theyd want to hang out with regardless. Alba hasnt had a boyfriend yet, but shes made herself a few good male friends as a result.
Albas home life is also pretty good. She gets along with her parents, particularly her dad. They like to go to driving ranges together and talk a lot. She does get along with her mom, but at times can get on her nerves. Because Albas out of the house a lot, she tends to fall behind on household chores, something her mother wants her to put more effort into. Alba and her mother also tend to argue since Alba often doesnt have time to look after her younger siblings. Albas had to sacrifice some planned social events in order to babysit, something she tends to be mad about for a day. Albas sibling do look up to their older sister. Carlos has asked Alba to teach him to play golf, so shes made an effort to help him get better. Sofia adores Alba, although Sofia is a little more feminine, so they dont have as much in common.
Now that shes in her junior year of high school, Albas trying to keep her social and academic life balanced while still trying her hardest to get her goals accomplish. This has had some mixed results, since Alba's at times been stressed out if she has too much on her plate, leading her to get migraines or to slip up in studies or extracurricular activities. She's been trying to balance these more by ensuring she put equal time into studying and practicing golf and roller derby, while also making sure she gets enough sleep each night. Shes trying hard to get passing grades in her classes, although she tends to do better in English and Science. She finds Math difficult at times, something she doesnt really like. Alba decided to study biology in college, with plans to go to veterinarian school afterwards, as a fallback in case the golf career doesnt work. Because of this, shes trying to raise her Math grades through tutoring sessions. Her grades are steadily improving, so she feels shes likely on track to get into a good college and later get into veterinarian school.
Advantages: Alba is in good shape from her regular physical exercise and training. Shes very goal driven and will do whatever she can to accomplish it. Shes also very friendly and loyal, giving her a few potential allies.
Disadvantages: Albas a bit dense at times and doesnt realize if shes being loud or annoying. She also can get stressed out if overworked. She can be brash and reckless at times, something that could lead to trouble on the island.

Conclusion: I don't care that you came from roller derby or how "tough" it is. I know where you're going and it's in the ground.- Josie Knight
