"Music class that does not teach you how to play notes perfectly but allows kids listen to ordinary sound from surroundings and to recreate that sound with their percussion sets. Literature class that its discussion is not limited to the usage of Singlish in literature but challenges kids to think about how Singlish shape their identities. As I facilitate such lessons for KidsAccomplish, I aspire to suggest them the foundation for their self-learning, not to give them lectures with bullet-pointed learning outcomes. When children ask me “Why is this?” my dream grew bigger. I hope to provide a space for them to grow without a fear of failing and to ask questions without a fear of being wrong."
Tammy Gan, Vice-President
"To me, KidsAccomplish is as much a space for the team as it is for the kids, to grow and be inspired. I've always believed in moving the education system towards getting kids to understand more beyond what they're learning in the textbook, and to love learning, and I feel this is paving the way for that. I myself have been greatly inspired by the kids to appreciate what I learn in Yale-NUS more. We have amazing kids here, and it really warms my heart to see them so excited about learning."
Tammy is currently a freshman in Yale-NUS, born and bred in sunny Singapore. She can't quite decide on what she wants to do, but at some point wants to start a brand of her own. Meanwhile, she dabbles in dance, journalism, video-editing, and consulting. You'll probably not find her doing anything in her free time, since her free time doesn't exist- but she definitely enjoys everything she's doing.
