Aboard the Lord Nelson

Posted: 17 June 2013

Twelve Singaporeans, including people with disabilities and their non-disabled friends and family, embarked on an unique 7-day-6-night adventure at sea from 29 May to 3 June 2013. Two of DPA’s members, Logaraj and Jim Bek, were also among the crew. Ong Shi Yi, one of the Singaporean crew members on the Lord Nelson, kindly granted DPA an interview. 

Shi Yi shares about her adventure on “Nelly” (the nickname of the Lord Nelson) on which the crew sailed to Tioman Island, what it was like in a typical day of a sailor, how the Lord Nelson is barrier-free, and her post-voyage understanding and thoughts of what being inclusive truly means.
