Hi, My name is Rubina and this year, 2016, I decided to run for a cause.
I am extremely fortunate to have a family that has always loved and supported my dreams. My parents believed in me and gave me the freedom to chose my career. As I grew up and moved to the west I have begun to appreciate small things in life.
However, not everyone is as lucky as I am. I grew up in Bombay, where I have seen small children work at traffic lights and beg for money. Their entire childhood being snatched away from them. It is easy to sit in the comfort of my house in the west and complain about the state of affairs of small children in India. But, I have learnt that there is no point in being a part of the problem. Be a part of the solution.
Hence, this year, I decided to join the Vibha Dream team and run for a cause. I hope that a small gesture will go a long way to educating a child who may truly deserve it and help change his/her life.
