Although pandas are known for their very bold, contrasting black and white colors, they are masters of being elusive hence pandas are rare gems in the wild and difficult to spot.
Our panda was inspired by Xue Xue’s story a giant panda that became the fourth giant panda to be bred in captivity and released into the wild in China in 2014.
She learned from her mother and without human intervention to search for food and water, nest, and avoid predators. She completely separated from her mother successfully at the age of 2 and exercised her independence.
With independence comes confidence. Our panda embodies gentle strength meaning that in life use a gentle but firm approach in being heard and understood.
Pandas are a symbol of good luck because they signify stability and certainty.
For this reason, our panda’s name, Mei Yu, meaning precious gem.
