Lysianne is the co- founder of Pedal for Purpose Project, community manager, performer, and fitness enthusiast. From a young age Lysianne always had a natural disposition for performing and the arts. After subjecting her friends and family for over a decade with renditions of Michael Jackson songs and one woman performances of the film Titanic, thankfully at 16 her passion led her to The Brit School for performing arts in Croydon. She then went on to continue her acting training at Queen Margaret’s University, Edinburgh. Since graduation, Lysianne has worked successfully in numerous theatre and TV roles, including playing Alice in an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland in Brixton, London. Lysianne is also an avid traveller. She is fascinated by different cultures and the human condition Whilst living and working in South Korea, Lysianne developed a keen interest in sports, fitness and health. She learnt that through self discipline and training came a strength both physically and mentally, that never knew she had. Since returning to London Lysianne managed the community events and run club for Lululemon in Covent Garden. She is also a member of the Hackney weightlifting club in London. In 2015, Lysianne competed in Olympic weightlifting competitions and also qualified and competed in the British Powerlifting Championships. She is proof that the impossible is always possible and that you should never limit your capabilities or talents. We can always learn new skills and where there is a will there is a way. Taking on the role of Community manager for Kanga and the Pedal for Purpose project is something that Lysianne is extremely proud and excited about. Being part of a movement that fuses music, yoga, endurance and community is something she is immensely grateful to be a part of. She is eager to lead the Journey of a Lifetime. “Art is man’s constant effort to create for himself a different order of reality from that which is given to him.” Chinua Achebe.
