Arriving in Canada from India, Rouble found herself navigating unfamiliar territories, both geographically and emotionally. The transition to a new country was not without its challenges, particularly for her daughter Mahi, who struggled to adjust to a new home and daycare environment. During this adjustment period, Rouble made a pivotal decision to prioritize her family over her career aspirations. 

Sacrificing her professional ambitions to focus on raising her children, Rouble embarked on a journey that would ultimately lead her to the field of education. Recognizing the importance of a fulfilling and meaningful career, Rouble found solace in the idea of teaching. This profession would allow her to impart knowledge while still dedicating time to her own children. 

With a resolve to pursue teaching, Rouble began her education journey. Armed with double master’s degrees in political science and computers, she sought opportunities to apply her qualifications in the teaching realm. It was through the Russell Branch, where Rouble could leverage her credentials and expertise that she found her pathway into the world of education.

However, the road to becoming a teacher was not without its hurdles. Despite her impressive academic background, Rouble encountered challenges in having her qualifications recognized within the education system. The process of accreditation and determining salary levels based on teaching degrees posed additional obstacles.

Undeterred by these challenges, Rouble persevered, advocating for recognition of her qualifications and seeking equitable treatment within the education sector. Her persistence paid off, as she secured benefits commensurate with her educational achievements, affirming her belief in the value of higher education and professional recognition. Reflecting on the cost of her educational journey, Rouble acknowledges the financial investment required to attain her degrees. However, she emphasizes that the rewards far outweigh the expenses, emphasizing the intrinsic value of education and personal growth. 

Despite the challenges she faced, juggling studies with familial responsibilities and navigating the complexities of a new country, Rouble remained steadfast in her commitment to achieving her goals. With unwavering determination and a positive mindset, she overcame obstacles and emerged triumphant, proving that with dedication and perseverance, anything is possible. 

As Rouble continues her journey as an educator, her story serves as a reminder of the transformative power of education and the resilience of the human spirit. From sacrifice to success, Rouble Singh’s narrative is a testament to the boundless possibilities that await those who dare to pursue their dreams.
