In March, I sat down with Eva Maxson to interview her about playing Ultimate in Belgium, Minnesota, and co-founding the Minnesota Strike.
Interviewing Eva was a joy! She was thoughtful and insightful during the conversation, and her Ultimate experience spans at least three continents, and several different countries. One of the light-hearted moments of the interview occurred when Eva explained that she experienced many more hammers and scoobers during practices in Europe, when compared to her practices in America.
If you find yourself in the U.S. and on the same team as Eva in the future, I hope you remedy that!
Eva also opened up about her experience co-founding the Minnesota Strike! She discussed the process, her reasons for helping start the team, and some of the challenges that have occurred since the pandemic.
I hope you enjoy the interview!
