The Productivity Issue: Female Gaze

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!



“Hello! My name is Tia Moua and I am a 19 year old Hmong-American from Washington State. I am very passionate about Asian-American activism and social justice work. I am currently planning on majoring in Communication Studies and International Relations. I enjoy dancing, playing “Among Us,” and reading.

I currently work for the Asian Pacific Islander Coalition-Spokane (APIC-Spokane). We work to promote voting and civic engagement among Asians and Pacific Islanders. 

Fun facts about me: I have five siblings, I can’t whistle, and I got lost in Disneyland twice. Also, I was Miss Washington’s Outstanding Teen 2017 and the first Hmong-American state title holder in the Miss America organization.” 

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.
