“My name is Aditi and my pronouns are she/her. I’m Indian-American and a social rights activist, feminist, and anti-racist. i’m especially passionate about racial/gender inequalities and climate change, and am apart of the activist group @theblueactivists. Also, i am currently starting a nonprofit to help girls in Bangladesh get an education, and give them more opportunities. In my free time, i enjoy writing (i’m currently writing a novel!), listening to indie music, and baking!”

“Hi I’m Asia I’m a 17 year old gay girl from Utah and I’m proud to be Vietnamese!”

“Hi my name is Gracelynn and I’m a Chinese-American. I’m an outspoken feminist and anti-racist who founded a teenage activist group with my friends, @theblueactivists. I want to use my voice to fight for social justice causes and human rights issues.”

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.
