Each issue we feature some of our readers to highlight the diversity and stories of Asian women around the world. Here are these issue’s ladies!
“I have a first degree in English Literature from Jadavpur University, Calcutta and a Master’s Degree in Social Anthropology from the London School of Economics and Political Science. I was chosen as one of 40 young Indians to assist Members of Parliament in a unique initiative called the Legislative Assistant to Members of Parliament (LAMP) Fellowship. I founded Aglet Ink, a creative content services firm that focusses on storytelling and research to help individuals and organizations with resumes, cover letters, linkedin profiles, speaking points, as well as strategizing for interviews.”
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.
