Alysia Lynn

  • Votes: 2229

Submitted by: Alysia Lynn

My name is Alysia, I’m 27, and I was born and raised a land-locked prairie girl on a farm in Northern Saskatchewan, Canada. I put on my first pair of flippers when I was a teenager; my dad got my family certified as a holiday gift. I’ve been addicted ever since!

My love of the ocean brought me to beautiful Vancouver Canada, which I currently call home. I’m super nerdy and currently work as a Business Technical Support homie for one of the largest communication companies in Canada. You call me, I’ll fix it! But, it’s not really my dream. And, even though I can look out at the ocean every day from my desk, it’s just not enough anymore. Time to start living a life that I want!!

Fun facts about me:

I’m 4’11 and could kick your butt at hide and seek
I’m a vegetarian
I’ve never broken a bone
When I’m not diving I’m singing and rocking out on my ukelele
My favourite (that’s how we spell favorite in Canada) fish is a six line wrasse

The official language of Canada is English and French. And, because I absolutely loved Ségolène’s video, I had my bio also translated into French in true Canadian fashion:

Les langues officielles du Canada sont français l'anglais. Parce que j'ai rit à grands éclats quand j'ai vu le vidéo de Ségolène, j'ai fait traduire ma biographie en vraie canadienne.

Je m'appelle Alysia, j'ai 27 ans et je suis née et élevée dans une ferme au nord de la Saskatchewan, Canada. J'ai mis ma première paire de nageoires quand j'étais adolescente; mon père a certifié toute ma famille en plongée sous-marine comme cadeau des fêtes. Je suis addicte à ce sport depuis ce moment là.

Mon amour pour l'océan m'a ammènée à la belle ville de Vancouver Canada, où j'habite couramment. Je suis une super nerd et en ce moment je travaille dans le département Business Support Technique en l'une des plus grandes compagnies de communication au Canada. Vous m'appelez et je solutionne, par contre, ce n'est pas vraiment mon rêve. Même si je peux voir la vue de l'océan à chaque jour de mon bureau, ce n'est plus suffisant. C'est le temps de commencer à vivre la vie que je veux!

Quelques faits amusants:

Je mesure 4'11" et je pourrais vous battre facilement à cache-cache.
Je suis végétarienne et je ne me suis jamais cassé un os.
Quand je ne plonge pas, je suis en train de jouer avec mon ukelele.
Mon poisson préféré est un Napoléon à six lignes.
