Santiya was born in Kuwait and raised in India. She moved to Denmark in 2018 with her family, and started working at ISIB the same year.

Santiya started her teaching career in 2003 as a high school mathematics teacher in India. She also privately home-tutored students until 2008. In 2009, Santiya moved to China, where she taught mathematics and science to upper secondary students at an international school.
