She was born at Washington Hospital Center in Ward 5, grew up in Takoma Park, MD, and currently lives on 13th St with her wife and two cats. Her public school education taught her the importance of education accessibility and equity. When she was in middle school, Rehana would go to the Takoma Park Public Library every day after school, since both of her parents worked outside of the home. She understands that for many families like hers, access to public space is incredibly important.
