”The world is as I am.”
Devika is from India, she is 24, for her ”independence” is a simple concept- having full autonomy over one’s life. She believes independence is about choice and control. It is about being strong and having the power to make her own decisions in life.
My name is Vicky Zhou. A proud alumna ?from University of Toronto. I am aspired to commit to the work of social justice, community and cultural empowerment. I love to write about, talk about and speak up about issues concerning the Asian community and other minority communities. I believe that a society that is inclusive, diverse and supportive is the most prosperous. You can check out my photography work @vic_shot_the_pic and my tiktok content @vicky_zzzzzzz
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.
