But hurry — they sell out fast!
In our Spring 2011 issue, we feature actress Anisha Nagarajan, who plays the shy call center worker Madhuri in NBC’s comedy Outsourced. Here, more of our interview with her.
Audrey Magazine: Your character Madhuri on NBC’s Outsourced is shrouded in mystery, but slowly unraveling her true self. Tell us a little more about her.
Anisha Nagarajan: She’s got a lot more to her than meets the eye. She comes across as this very shy sort of wallflower, but she … can, at times, hold her own when it comes to retaliating when people say things to her about being a wallflower. It’s going be fun to see how people react to the surprises that she’s going to show everyone. I’m enjoying discovering her through the writing and through everybody else’s impression of her. It’s interesting to see where she’s going to go and what’s going to happen.
From cult status as co-host of G4’s Attack of the Show, to prime-time star on NBC’s Perfect Couples and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, modern day Wonder Woman Olivia Munn has transformed from geek goddess to the new thinking man’s woman.

JAMES RYU | Publisher
ANNA M. PARK | Editor-in-Chief
ANNA M. PARK spent six years as a corporate bankruptcy attorney before realizing that she’d rather swim with sharks in Moorea, trek through remote mountain villages in the northern Philippines, and, most frighteningly, brave a commuter bus in Seoul during rush hour, than spend another day writing legal briefs. Today, she is an award-winning writer and editor-in-chief of Audrey Magazine. The best part of her second career? She gets to wear whatever she wants.
JANICE JANN | Assistant Editor
Janice Jann is astonished by how accurate the Meyers Briggs profile of her as an ENFP is. An idealistic champion of causes who will stop at nothing to get a good story told, Janice graduated from UCLA and spends her time as Assistant Editor of Audrey Magazine finding and sharing stories that will matter to the modern Asian (or not Asian) American woman (or man). While not at work, she is still writing away at her blog, www.themediamaid.com.

KATRINA GUEVARA | Editorial Intern
Katrina Guevara is a junior journalism major and psychology minor at Cal State Long Beach. Even though she doesn’t mind talking about herself in the third-person, she would much rather spend her time on other things like witty banter, photography and traveling.
RACHEL TSAO | Online Intern
Rachel Tsao recently graduated from UC Irvine with a degree in Literary Journalism and minor in Digital Arts. In her free time, she enjoy playing tennis, baking, and trying new and different types foods.
MELODY LEE | Online Intern
Melody Lee spent most of her life living in Hong Kong, and now she travels back and forth between Asia and America. She is currently studying at the University of Southern California, pursuing a double degree in Business Administration and Psychology. She never leaves the house without a pair of heels on because she believes that longer-looking legs are totally worth the pain (plus they give a boost of confidence).

In our Winter 2010-11 issue, we introduced you to Ruby Veridiano, writer, speaker, arts educator, media personality and founder of the Glamourbaby Diaries, a writing empowerment program for Asian American college women. Here, more of our conversation with Ruby.
Audrey Magazine: OK, give us the basics.
Ruby Veridiano: Filipina-Chinese American, 27, born in Manila, raised in Sacramento, and currently residing in New York City. I went to University of California Davis, majored in Sociology of World Development with minors in Asian American Studies and Communications.
AM: You’ve been conducting writing workshops called the Glamourbaby Diaries, thanks to a grant by Asian Women Giving Circle. What are these workshops about, who’s attending, and why are you holding them?
RV: The workshops are for young women ages 14-20. I designed it for Asian American women as a space for dialogue about issues that they face. However, it is open to all women of various backgrounds. Right now, I have a group of girls from different backgrounds attending, which is great because it allows us all to learn from each other, and build solidarity between different communities. I held these workshops because I wanted to create an empowering place where women can view positive Asian American female role models that stand for something.
I’m also in the midst of planning the Glamourbaby Diaries speaking tour in the Spring of 2011, taking this program and compacting it into a one day event. I am excited to share this program and dialogue with future female leaders all across the U.S. next year!
AM: What does “glamourbaby” mean to you? Why that name?
RV: Ah, the term “glamourbaby.” Well, let me tell you how it came about. My friend once taped me speaking, and I kept messing up with all of these bloopers. I think I kept spitting and sounded like I had a lisp! And then I said, “Ah man, well…it’s not all glamour, baby.”
And much like most of life, it isn’t all glamour. Especially when you’re striving towards a dream, the path towards anything worth fighting for is filled with obstacles. Moreover, as an activist, there’s nothing glamorous about the injustice you witness and the disparity that you become aware of. But it’s about fighting through the struggle, embracing adversity to let it serve as a lesson of humility and perseverance, and continuing to represent something beautiful for your community. The people I consider glamourbabies are those who represent truth, love, and hope. They are influential, purposeful, visionary. They set trends and but more importantly, they set goals. They are aware of their power to inspire and act.
