Adiba works at Aga Khan National Conciliation and Arbitration Board for the USA. In this episode, she briefly talks about what CAB is and her role within CAB. She also talks about her past work with UNICEF and HOPE and how it ties into her motivation to help people improve their quality of life. Adiba discusses her growing up years in Tajikistan, her family and the unrest situation in the early 1990s and her move to the United States. She expresses her gratitude to Hazar Imam for the help provided to murids in Tajikistan in terms of food supply when there was a shortage. She talks about her education in the United States and the novelties she experienced when she moved to the US coming from a small town in Tajikistan (eg: automatic sliding doors were things that she had never seen before). She hopes to inspire other  immigrants to stay motivated and ask for help from Jamati members and institutions when they face the challenges of settlement in a new country.
