Lucy Lim

For 37 years, Lucy Lim has been a freelance sign language interpreter, having worked with the Malaysian Deaf community. She obtained her MA in Special Needs and Certificate Interpreting Training Programme at Grant MacEwan College in 1985.

She’s also an advocate for the deaf community and has taken full advantage of sign language, known as BIM (Bahasa Isyarat Malaysia), and turned it into a full-fledged career. Although her career isn’t the typical 9-5, Lucy’s career has seen her serving the deaf community in tremendous ways. For instance, offering her services to the police force and interpreting for the launch of sports at Selangor’s Deaf ceremony.

Going a step further, she’s interpreted for the Deaf Olympics in Taipei. Currently, Lucy is attached to the Malaysian Deaf Sports Association (MSDeaf) and freelance interpreter serving the Malaysian Deaf community and serves as a resource person to various organisations in the country. Her achievements truly deserve applause as she continues to inspire us all.

Making an impact is to ensure information accessibility for all and to make a positive difference in the lives of those in the Deaf community. I/We Can’t to I/ We can! Let’s be on this journey together.
