Each issue we feature the many beautiful and diverse faces of Asian womxn around the world. Here are this issue’s Overachievers!
“I am a 24 year old strong and passionate woman. I am from India and my hobbies include; crocheting, doing art in all kinds of mediums, dancing to k-pop (Korean Pop) songs and dressing up & clicking selfies. Being a well-organized person, I tend to prioritize my work which helps me accomplish my tasks and meet deadlines. I meet and get involved with people every day. I enjoy listening and giving input to people I interact with so that they know they can count on me. I am a patient resourceful, diligent, truthful and hardworking designer in the making, with the ability to design from the brink.”
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.
