Layne Cuautle, 22, of Bowling Green doesn’t give much consideration to what others think about the life she leads. The fashion enthusiast and rookie roller derby competitor has surrounded herself with things she loves to do and people who encourage her to do them.

“I’ve always been an introvert, but I can portray an extrovert really well,” Cuautle said. “I give trust to select people, and they help me maintain myself and let me know I can do things that I want to do and be all the things I want to be.”
