One of the co creators of little asia. Working alongside with three incredible Pan Asian women, their start up magazine surrounds diverse stories of self-identity and trends in the Asian community. It started off as a Toronto based magazine. You can find them at their Instagram: @littleasiamag

Photo context: “This is me celebrating my Filipina moro identity. I belong to one of the 13 Islamized ethnolinguistic tribes in Southern Philippines. This photo was taken when we were filming the poetry I made about my moro identity.”

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.
