Sister Shiso Panda

Tagline: Come Taste the Orient

Age: Rude! A lady never reveals…

Hometown: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Ethnicity: Pan Asian. Predominantly Chinese mixed with a little Malay, Thai, Filipino, and a skoosh of Vietnamese.

Chosen Ministries: Queer AAPI representation; making it less taboo to be queer in Asian culture; queer immigration in the U.S.; mental health awareness and suicide prevention; encouraging book reading and championing banned books; fighting back against hate, homophobia, transphobia, queerphobia, bigotry, fascism, racism, disinformation, misinformation, and misguided nationalism. There is no alternative fact–a fact is a fact. Anything other than that is a lie and is called brainwashing.

Favorite Quote: “Stereotypes do not define us. We have the power to define stereotypes.” – Sister Shiso Panda

Favorite Thing As a Sister So Far: Connecting with members of the community one-on-one on a deeper level. I love bringing joy and touching the lives of others, no matter how big or small, Blessed be and under His eye. Make sure it is not in his eye because it burns–always only under his eye.
