Melissa Xiao incorporates two elements:
"Melissa" means this actress has been in NZ since primary school and to stop the name bullying, she gave herself an English name so kids wouldn't make fun of her original name
"Xiao" (you can pronounce it like "Show") means this actress's ethnicity derives from China. Beijing is where she was born and mandarin is the mother language she speaks.
Like this bio, Melissa is unconventional and versatile. Having worked in a Chinese TV Station as an entertainment show host as well as news anchor, her mandarin voice work can stretch from being the voice behind a cartoon to the voice behind an Auckland city documentary.
