Hello! I'm Rabya. I work full time in Project Management, I’m a parent, a photographer, instagrammer, blogger, and advocate for better representation of BAME folk in our society and systems.
I was born in Pakistan, and moved to the UK when I was just shy of a year old. Growing up in the UK, there were tough parts to childhood and adulthood when it came to navigating school, friends and the workplace.
Fast forward to 2007 I graduated with a law degree with absolutely no desire to pursue that lawyer life. The ensuing weeks took me to temp work in an IT company. There I slowly got involved in IT Projects learning the ropes, and over ten years on I lead and set up Project Management Offices and practices within organisations so that they can execute projects to achieve their strategic goals.
In 2015 I became a mother to my darling son Rafe. I shifted and changed as a person, and so had what I wanted from life. I began to teach myself photography and editing, but also came upon the same in real life challenges online - a lack of representation. I began to speak out on this in 2018, and very much active to this day.
I still love creating imagery that’s engaging, and content that resonates.
