With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

In ten years, I would like to see myself finished college or university for creative photography and movie makeup. Possibly in a relationship and maybe kids. Travelling around the world in search of people to photograph. Have a business of my own and living comfortably.

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

I have many flaws but, the one that sticks out the most to me is my smile. My teeth aren't perfect and my cheeks and mouth are big so I usually only grin. I'm growing because of the photography, makeup and other photographers asking me too shoot with them. My confidence is levelling up so I get less worried about my insecurities.

 

 

 

What's something you find miraculous about life?

My favorite thing about life is people. Is it weird to be people obsessed? I find it pretty amazing that everyone looks and sound different. We have our own opinions and ideas and we makeup our human. No one is exactly the same. I find that extremely special.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I currently work at Top Shop as a sales associate. I live there most of the time. I'm always working. I love working with clothes and being able to see everyone's fashion sense. I hangout with my dad, his girlfriend and friends. I love being in groups always doing something different.

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

I'd grown up with the idea that the colour of my skin wasn't good enough sometimes. That the colour of my skin was a disgrace. That because I was different I shouldn't be proud of who I am. That celebrating myself and my heritage wasn't allowed, because it was simply embarrassing. That, the hair on my body was a curse from my South Asian lineage. And I thought my eyebrows where too thick. That, my height was abnormal, so I'd slouch in pictures to blend in with everyone else. I thought that my hair was too frizzy, so I straightened it everyday, and prayed that maybe some how some day my crazy hair would tame down.

And that's what was flawed in me, that I grew up building the idea of the perfect version of myself. When too many years later, I realize that all these things that made me use to hate myself, are the reasons I'm proud to be where I'm from today. My name is Rafia Babar, I am proud to be Bangladeshi. 

 

With no inhibitions where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

Hopefully done school by then.

What's something you find miraculous about life?

Life in itself is a miraculous thing. Live it to your fullest.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I'm living out the RUMBLE concept by being me to the fullest, and putting myself out there.

Working a computer science job within the fashion industry.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I live out the RUMBLE concept with my girl gang, Huaijin and Catherine. We have been supporting each other for the past 7 years and will continue to stick together in the future. The support I've received from the both of them has really allowed me to believe in myself and succeed in life. We have always helped each other out in times of need and always willing to give advice and suggestions. My life would not be the same with my girl gang there to guide me.

What's a perceive flaw you have, how are you growing?

One major flaw that I recently discovered about myself is my ability to always give people the benefit of the doubt, but when they don't deserve it. Being naive to people's wickedness has caused me a lot of pain in the past and I have been able to realize that I always do this, recently. To grow from this I have been putting less trust in people that I don't have good vibes about and although it is very hard not to assume that everyone has good intentions and is good at heart, it is necessary to do this so I reduce the amount of people that walk all over me and take my kindness for granted. I'm a person that likes to believe that people are pure hearted but always assuming this is my major flaw that I am desperately trying to get rid of.

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

I'd like to be a successful businessman or be at the higher level of experience of my passions (cooking, music, fitness).

What's something you find miraculous about life?

I love how open ended life is. There is no set way to live. With the proper skills and determination, anyone could be a champion. The opportunity that life gives and how random it is makes life worth living. 

How are you living out the RUMBLE concept?

In my life at home, I'm really boring. I enjoy simple things like getting better at cooking or trying to learn a new language. With friends is when I'm most exciting and when I'll have the most joy.
