“Share Share is the universal currency,” Segami says.

‘Share Share’ or 谢谢 (traditional Chinese characters, pronounced as ‘xiè xie’ in official pinyin) means Thank You in Mandarin Chinese, the official spoken language in China. Mandarin is spoken by most people from the Northern part of China, such as Beijing & Shanghai. Most foreigners learn to speak Mandarin these days. While as Cantonese is the language spoken by the people from the Southern part, such as Hong Kong, Guangzhou and in most Chinatowns across USA.

Segami would like to share her art and message with you.
