“Jaipur Gate, India” and “Be your own Wonder Woman” by Vani Shree R (IG: @vani.illustrates) Medium: digital
“INDIA.” by morar.creative Medium: digital Artist’s note: As a child growing up in Canada as a 2nd generation immigrant, I remember learning that we called India, Mother India. We cared for her as our own mother. However, during the heights of the pandemic, Mother India got extremely sick. It was during a time when Covid 19 was truly hurting this land. It brought to light the incredible social inequalities and the lack of access that many had to healthcare, medicine and proper burial grounds. Although things have improved, India has a long journey ahead.
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.
