Leader Bio

Nora is a rising Junior doing a joint concentration in Neuroscience and History of science. Nora lives in Cabot house currently (sQUAD) but is from Bethlehem, Palestine. After a long day of class at the science center you can find Nora on the 9th floor’s observatory trying to spot the moon and get it in focus. She is loves debating not-so-serious topics like the quad’s convenience as she is passionate about one of its most underrated perks; that quidditch practice happens right outside of Cabot on the quad lawn. Nora has taken part in organizing and moderating several conferences since she started her time at Harvard including the Arab conference at Harvard as a panel chair, the US Arabic Debate championship and Education without borders. She has competed for the school in national and international MUN and Debate championships and was part of a lot of cultural and political on campus organizing. She is always down to talk, and make the trek from the quad for any lovely international gatherings.
