But Chua is not the only one to be making a splash at the Times.
The Times announced in May that it had selected Chua as the first female Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, an achievement that came as a surprise to many.
The newspaper’s editors have been praising Chua for her “exquisitely written, insightful and sometimes controversial” work.
Amy Choo, Pulitzer Prize winnerAmy Chauch Chua, a Pulitzer Prize laureate, has been hailed as one of America’s most influential female journalists.
But her work is often criticized for its superficiality and sometimes for its gender bias.

“The problem is that we can’t take the pressure off women,” Chua said in a 2013 interview with NPR.
“We’ve been fighting for decades and years and years to get equal pay for equal work, and there is not enough of a demand.”
In fact, the Times is just one of many media outlets that have criticized Chua.
In 2015, it pulled an entire section of its website from the site because of its gender biases, and in 2017, it decided to ban the popular website Buzzfeed.
Chua, who won the Pulitzer for “The Last Tycoon,” has had some controversial writing as well.
The author recently wrote an article titled “Why the White House Might Be the New Civil Rights Movement,” which argued that Trump was wrong to condemn white nationalists after the Charlottesville protests, and called for more support for women.
“Women are not going to take it.
Women have been on the losing side in all wars, from slavery to the civil rights movement,” Chuea said in an interview with Vice.
Chua also argued that women should be more visible on the cover of Time magazine.
In a recent interview with NBC News, Chua suggested that the election of President Donald Trump was a mistake, and she called on Americans to be “proactive.”
“If we are not engaged and engaged, if we are just reacting to what’s going on, then we are going to have to look to the future,” Chui said.
“The way I see it, the way I feel, the fact that we’re getting to this point and we’re so polarized, is not because of the men who are saying, ‘Oh, well, women are being blamed,’ but because we’ve let it happen,” she added.
