Shakina previously worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Auckland making knockout mutations in Staphylococcus Aureus to find an alternative strategy to fight post-surgery infections caused by the Superbug strain of Staph, which was also her final year thesis project.

She developed a love for teaching after the birth of her daughter and decided to pursue her B.Ed degree from SNDT University. Shakina believes that teachers inspire, support, mentor and get the chance to discover and share some of the best parts of their selves as human beings.
