Sigmund Ban SIY
Sigmund Ban Siy is an Engineering student currently in Mapua University. He developed his love and passion in Chinese culture through his Xavier Chinese Experience (XCE) trips back in Yunnan and Beijing in the year¬ 2014 and 2016, respectively. From then on, he started engaging himself in learning more about Mandarin and Min Nan.
Through his experience as an exchange student in Taiwan during the Fall Semester of the year 2019, his eyes were opened more to learning about different cultures, especially the different Minnan Dialects (Taiwanese, Xiamen, Penang, Manila, etc.) he was exposed to.
In joining The Lannang Archives, he aims to help preserve the Minnan language by sharing his experiences through his passion in writing poems, essays, articles, and the like.
