Episode 66 - Rabia Sitabi

“Just be open to everyone.” - Rabia Sitabi

Rabia Sitabi’s life started in tough circumstances: she lost both her parents by the age of 16 and had to become a mother for her younger siblings. Since then she has taken a very unique journey through her career working across a range of different industries and professions. Rabia is now a international culture ambassador who aims to connect the East to the West through events and education. During the week she runs strategy and operations for two international marketing and consultancy agencies, and in her spare time she collaborates with the likes of the South Korean government, Chinese writers, Pakistani LGBTQ groups and Indian Art collectives to expand intercultural awareness in Europe. Her fields of expertise are mostly marketing, branding, social media, and strategy.

We talk about becoming an orphan at 16, beta testing Facebook in 2006, being a coloured female in tech, working in 10 different industries before turning 30, meeting Adele before she was famous and much more.
