Rabi is a designer who became disabled after a car accident 20 years ago. She struggled from recovering from the accident, both physically and mentally. But as Rabi recovered, she started her own design firm, while also taking paid jobs performing as an MC and actress.

Rabi insists that all of her performances must be paid, as she does not want to be hired just because she is a disabled person. She wants to be recognized as having the ability to perform and deliver.

She believes that the SLASH lifestyle is suitable especially for disabled employees, as a full-time job may be too physically demanding, as well as time-consuming for those who require frequent doctor check-ups. The flexibility also allows Rabi to participate in public affairs and services in her spare time.
