Inheritance

When I think of my heritage
I think of what I inherited
Lack of justice, the great miscarriage
My mind lost in layers of covers
I search for the bed of a motherland
Sifting through clutter
Until I then feel the hands
Oh, my sweet ancestors
Reminding me strong I must stand
For my most considerable inheritance is oh so grand
Resilience is my blood, it can be read through my palm
No my journey my heart and mind are calm

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.
