A word from the artist: “

As a mixed race, first-generation Asian American I’ve often struggled to identify where my voice belongs. I sometimes feel “too Asian” and other times “not Asian enough.” I’m sometimes white passing and sometimes not. Although I have a POC identity, I still hold a lot of privilege. Between the initial wave of racism against Asians when the pandemic hit, and the latest wave of racial injustice against black Americans, I’m continuously asking myself, “what is my role?” We all play a role in dismantling racism. Educate yourself. Listen to, learn from, and amplify marginalized voices. Find and support your local BIPOC businesses. And remember this work is active and ongoing. The reflected text on this self portrait repeats, “I am Japanese, I am not Japanese. I understand, I don’t understand.””

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.
