Special Feature on Asian American History I: Overachievers

Each issue we feature some of our readers to highlight the diversity and stories of Asian women, non-binary individuals, and other gender minorities around the world. Here are this issue’s Overachievers!

“My name is Sarah and my Chinese name is 丽绣 and my pronouns are she/her. I am a Chinese adoptee living in Canada. I feel this is important to mention as we should also be included when celebrating API month and want others adoptees to see a familiar face. I am a university student and am really passionate about advocating for social justice issues. Extremely grateful to Overachiever Magazine for their ongoing work to amplify our voices and for bringing us all together.”

Why now?

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.
