Rachel Prince is a senior undergraduate student studying Neuroscience and Creative Writing. Due to her unwavering passions for both healthcare and the humanities, she hopes to work as a physician at the intersection of these two fields. She is inspired by the stories of those she interacts with, and is a firm believer in that role that writing and storytelling play in the clinic. Her work typically centers on illness and trauma narrative, exploring her own South Asian culture, and de-stigmatizing mental health. When she’s not engrossed in her academics, you can typically find her cafe-hopping, writing poetry, or composing music for the piano. Her poetry has been published in The Heart of Medicine and mOthertongue.
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.
