Rabia came to Chicago two years ago. She is originally from Afghanistan, but before fleeing, she lived in Pakistan for two years. She came to Chicago with her husband, four sons and one daughter. Her favorite memories from her life in Afghanistan are the yearly celebrations of Eid, where families and friends get together, eat big and delicious food and dance a lot.
Her favorite craft to do at Loom is silk scarf painting, but she is very eager to learn crochet as Rahima, her good friend, is teaching her.
