Parissa Koo was born March 7th, 1993. Koo is Chinese from her dad’s side and Persian from her mom’s, hence “Persianese”.

Quoting Parissa, “I feel so blessed to be able to go out in the world and see that my life is uncharted; able to be written however I choose. I love and thank the people who care about me the most: my family, friends, and fans who are supporting me to go out and be the best that I can be.”
