About Zi Mei  (pronounced “Zee May”)                                                                                                          Zi Mei Events was established in 2008 by Leisha Ward and her sister (Renaee Johns). The name for the business was inspired by their previous adventures together. In 2007, Leisha and Renaee experienced a five week adventure travelling through China. During their trip they made small forays into the Chinese vocabulary, including the Chinese for older sister – “Zi Zi” and younger sister – “Mei Mei”.  Thus colloquially when introducing themselves together as older and younger sister – “Zi Mei”. It was thought to be an apt name for their new venture!  Although Renaee has decided to explore other adventures—the name continues.
