The Health Issue: Female Gaze



Each issue we feature the lovely faces of Asian womxn all over the world. Here are this week’s ladies:


Nell Valle

Nell is an art student at MassArt in Boston, MA. A fun fact about her: she loves guinea pigs! Nell believes that: “We should all treat mental health just as important as physical health. They go together and affect one another in countless ways. Caring for my mental health through self-care such as exercise, reading, and relaxing helps me recharge and organize my feelings. It sets me up for balance in the future.”

She is also the founder and curator of The PieFace Column, a creative and introspective outlet that contains a variety of material from poetry to photography to personal essays.

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.
