Modern Bazaar

We came from people who wandered bazzars
Using their feet, not segways, or cars
The goods they purchased were just as indegneous as they
The grounds they shopped own where where their ancestors lay
The money they gave was placed in the hand of the weaver
She tied knotts as tight as the community she lived in, art her fever
Today we the descendants crave a connection
We hold our compasses out but we are given no direction
We have no bazzar to turn to so we must create it
Because if not the majority will take our culture and claim that fast fashion made it

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.
