Hardly Seen Always Noticed

A poem by ReubenaWrites

Silence, but it’s really growth.
Nonverbal wins that no one understands.
Hours of self-presence.
It’s a state of mind that fumes inner peace.

Hardly seen, but always noticed,
it’s a concept many refuse, likely due to
self-arrogance. She lives in the creation of her own
ambiance, lights are lit and dimmed when needed.

There’s no desire to be like the rest,
just the urge to stay consistent.
It’s a path of choice.
It’s the path of silent growth.

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.
