Artist’s note: ““But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’ Ah, that’s the great puzzle!” Ongoing series taken by Annie Lu (editor of @how2bebadzine), where the body is performance art and sexuality is the red & cyan filter through which the viewer sees in 3D.”

Artist: Vania Djelani // IG: @vaniiid
Pieces (L to R): “Tenacious Grip (2019)”, “(un)covered (2019)”
Medium: Embroidery. 8×6 cm., Woodcut print. 20.32 x22.86 cm.
Artist’s note: “As an artist and writer based in Tiohtiá:ke, or Montreal, Vania Djelani explores the ways in which materiality can be manipulated to construct a sense of identity, in exploring subjects like race, class and gender. Through a series of portrait studies, her artistic practice often draws on personal relationships and its influence on self-reflection. In dealing with familial narratives, memory and loss, the bodies seen in her works appear passive and self-conscious. With attention drawn to the gaze and the grip, her use of vivid colours and floral motifs add to the dreamlike quality of her pieces. By exploring a variety of mediums, Djelani attempts to preserve and materialize these fleeting impressions, as they get woven into our identities.”

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.
