✨People of ULC #2✨: A beast of a captain and doctor-to-be Tammy Lim
Don't judge her by her cute innocent smile. Tammy is an inspiration - she is dedicated, wilful, strong and caring. Despite her alarmingly busy schedule, she makes it a point to come down for training as often as she can. She pushes herself as well as others around her with dignity and compassion - testament to her bubbly personality. Just look at her wide grin before she murdered us with her curated gym sets.... What are legs? I can't feel them anymore
On sunny saturdays, you can see her gliding across the choppy murky waters of Sentosa on her trusty kayak ever so effortlessly with a paddle in hand. Someone on the ULC team has even awkwardly proclaimed she resembled a swan on a lake
Tammy is a medical student. Tammy is busy. Tammy still comes for training. Be like Tammy
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAMMY
To kickstart a series called People of ULC, we would like to introduce our beloved coach, Mr Sim Lye Hock. An icon to the lifesaving scene across the island, he's well known by many as a respectable forefather of the competitive lifesaving sport we have today
You might've seen him walking around school or swimming in the pool! He's been working with NUS for about 30 years, currently as a management assistant officer
After work, he dedicates his free time to coaching the life...saving team, a position he has held and carried out with compassionate diligence since 1988. He has built the loving ULC family we have today over the years with his earnest honesty, kindness and laughter
Strong or weak, nobody is denied his care. He pushes everyone equally hard during training, and waits for everyone to complete their laps, get sufficient rest, before moving on to the next training set. He pushes people's limits, while doing it with understanding
Many of us are appreciative of his presence and work. Even alumnus currently in their 30s-40s drop by for training occasionally amidst their busy schedules to say hi and to help coach the team members, out of a sense of respect and belonging, to willingly and lovingly give back what they have received. He plans team surfing trips to Malaysia and Taiwan on occasion, brings us out for yummy meals, and throws gatherings at his house during Chinese New Year
Every training is a blessing, to be surrounded by loving friends and a loving coach. And we, the lifeguards of ULC, are truly thankful for the fruits of his labour
With love - ULC students and alumnus, past and present
