ALISA & LYSANDRA
INTERIOR DESIGNERS, THE BLOCK WINNERS
& FOUNDERS OF AL.IVE BODY
WHERE DID YOU THINK YOU WERE HEADED WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG?
A: I don't think we ever thought we were going to do something together. L: I was adamant that I was going to be police officer. That was my dream ever since I was five. A: I was never a hundred percent sure. Some kids just know what they want to do. I finished school, I went to uni for a semester, and then I did personal training and ran that business for a couple of years and then obviously went into the police force, but I probably got the idea from Lysandra. L: I was going to do that from the beginning. I did my year 10 work experience with the police. So that was always my path and there was never anything that was going to stop me from doing that.
A: So, I ran my business for about three years, and it was actually a very successful business. But I think when you start going to bed, counting going all right four, three, two, one more set, I thought this is not my life! I just had that realisation of there's gotta be more than just counting. It was great just something that I couldn’t see long term. Lysandra had done the traveling she went to Camp
America and did England and all that, I kind of regret not doing it, but I think I had a boyfriend at the time, and I’d started my business. She’d always wanted to apply for the police force, it took me a couple of times to get in, but I actually beat her into the police force. L: So, my lifelong dream and then when she was applying and she didn't get in, I was secretly like, yes! We were at the Academy together, but she was just one course ahead of me. We could have been the same course, but we decided not to.
