In this article I focus on the South Asian community because it is the one that I belong to, and the one that has affected my decisions.

The Professional and Academic Discrimination Issue: Model Minority

  


 

Every issue, we feature a few aspiring and current female Asian models. These models are challenging beauty standards, tearing down cultural stigmas, and living their best lives. This issue we are featuring:

For booking, inquiries, and contact of the models, send an email to overachievermagazine@gmail.com.

Overachiever Magazine was started by Rehana Paul in October of 2018 to give a platform to all Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities.

Our name is poking fun at the stereotype that all Asians are overachievers, especially Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities. It’s also in recognition of all of us who have had no choice but to be overachievers: managing societal expectations, family obligations, and educational opportunities, all while fighting the patriarchy.

We have grown since then, putting out bimonthly issues (we are contributor powered: apply to write for our next one!), and weekly reviews of culture, and news that is important to us.

You can find announcements, more news, and get to know our staff on social media: give us a follow, and learn how you can get involved today!

We do not claim to speak for all Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities. We are just here to give them a place to speak for themselves.

We hope you’ll join us.
