Lianne's journey with LKTBF began over three years ago when she joined the organization as an intern. What started as a temporary position soon blossomed into a long-term commitment fueled by Lianne's unwavering dedication and passion for the cause.

During her initial internship, Lianne collaborated with her colleague, Roanna Koopmans, on a groundbreaking project aimed at developing a special beach volleyball product with a social impact cause.

Their innovative work caught the attention of LKTBF's partner, Ninesquared in Italy, leading to a six-month internship abroad. It was during this time that the design of LKTBF's current gear was conceptualized, laying the foundation for the organization's branding identity.
