She originally came to work as a specialized educator but found her true calling in volunteerism. As a devout Muslim, she is heavily involved with the Muslim community, cooking thousands of meals for mosques spread throughout the city. She lends a hand to anyone in need, regardless of race, religion or gender. In 2017, as her 70th birthday approached, she created the Sister Sabria Foundation aimed at implementing long-term solutions to eliminate hunger and support women in difficulty.
