It’s been 3 years since we published our list of 25 game-changers under the age of 25. Since then, so many Asian Americans we’ve featured have continued doing great work, and there are, of course, new faces making waves. One of the our goals for the 2018 list was to celebrate more Asian Americans who are often underrepresented within our communities, including non-binary individuals and South Asians. While we’ve noticed more Asian Americans on the big and small screen, so many of them are creating their own content and leading the pack in digital media.
This year’s list has incredible talent throughout so many fields: badass snowboarder Chloe Kim is dominating the sport and winning fans around the world; YouTuber Liza Koshy is now an internet star; and activists such as genderqueer model Chella Man and women’s health advocate Nadya Okamoto give us hope for the future. Check out the full list for more inspiring Asian Americans, including exclusive interviews, and let us know who we should feature in our next round.
