She is the eldest of 5 younger siblings and is also the oldest cousin on both sides of her family. Due to being the oldest child, Rabia naturally took on a leadership role and would enjoy “playing teacher” with them. This was one of the many reasons as to why she chose to go into teaching. Another reason why Rabia chose teaching as a career is because of her stepfather who is also a teacher. He has taught grades 6-8 math and science and has helped her with her studies growing up. In turn, she would enjoy helping him mark his students work back when she was in high school. It was since then that she decided to become a teacher.

She has also taught at all grade levels during her placements at various schools throughout the Halton District School Board.
