Saba moved to the United States over 16 years ago from India. She lives in Aurora with her husband and two children who attend IPSD 204 schools.
She has built strong relations with local community leaders, business owners, various organizations and diverse groups of people. She is passionate about bringing people together and building a strong and connected community. She believes that when we work together as contributing members, we all thrive and grow as a part of a safe, welcoming and diverse community.
Saba grew up in India and moved to the US after getting married to her husband, Ali Kazmi. Ali is a Software Engineer with a Masters in Business Administration. He currently works for Northern Trust Bank as a VP. Saba's mother runs a school for underprivileged kids in India. Even as a septuagenarian, her mother gets up every morning at 5 AM to open the doors of her school to provide education to kids who otherwise might not have access to education at all. Saba's dad is a retired Civil Engineer who worked tirelessly all his life in the public sector. Both her parents taught Saba three things: focus on education, hardwork and to always be of service to others, no matter what.
She carried those values with her when she moved to the US to raise her family. She immersed herself in her local communities. From volunteering in her kids' classrooms to being the PTA President, she has always made sure to be of service to better the lives of every student in her community. She works tirelessly to provide her leadership skills as a business owner to various Boards and parents' organizations. As a business leader, she continues to fight to expand mental health resources and awareness. She believes that economic sustainability, growth and development is paramount to thriving communities. Her educational background gives her the unique perspective to understand that climate change threatens our ecosystems, jeopardizes our food security, impacts supply-chain and puts future generations at risk.
