Lang Duong is a proud first-generation Vietnamese-American. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in May 2021 with a Psychology BS, and she is currently working as a Clinical Research Coordinator at the University of Pennsylvania - Perelman School of Medicine. As a member of the AAPI community, a lot of her career/research interests entail the creation of culturally-sensitive psychotherapies, democratization of psychological sciences, and identity development in Asian adolescents. She is also extremely passionate about making the psychology career path more accessible to minoritized students through individual meetings with undergraduate students seeking to pursue higher education. Aside from her professional interests, she is a huge animal lover with a big heart for pit bulls. In her free time, she volunteers at the local animal shelters to take the dogs out on walks!
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.
