姐姐 or 妹妹


Explanation:
in Chinese, the sister who is older than you in family is called '姐姐' and the sister who is younger than you is called '妹妹'。 if the sister doesn't refer to specific figure, generally we can construe 'sister' as ‘姐妹’, which is combination of 姐姐 and 妹妹。
prononciation:
'姐姐': jiejie
'妹妹': meimei
‘姐妹’:jiemei
