Born and raised in Edmonton, Rabia is passionate about connecting people and ideas to create stronger, more connected communities.

Much of her work is centred on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 17: Partnership for the goals. Through her work with organizations such as Edmonton’s NextGen and Engineers Without Borders Canada, she has recognized that a collaborative approach is the key to finding effective, sustainable solutions.

Rabia completed her Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering at the University of Alberta. Her undergraduate experience has inspired her motivation to gain a deep understanding of global sustainability issues and apply her technical knowledge in the area of climate action through policy to counter the multidisciplinary impacts of climate change.  

In her spare time you might find Rabia at a local craft or farmer’s market, enjoying the an Edmonton festival, or creating some form of art.
