Conversation No. 27 – Noor

Noor is from Saudi Arabia, where she was living as a journalist, educator, traveler, CrossFitter, and aspiring screenwriter at the time of her interview. Her days were spent, “meditating, reading, and trying new things whenever I can.”

Noor described how she likes to begin each day:

“Whenever I wake up any day, any time, I always wish [to] meet someone interesting that day. If not in person, then online, or at least [I try to] read something interesting about someone. It’s always a motivation to me.

…I think everyone is interesting…everyone who is different [from me]. Everyone has a different story to tell me and becomes at a certain stage in my life or in their life, interesting. So they have got something interesting to give me.”

We talked about some of the people Noor follows on social media:

“Quite a few you know, it’s not just one or two, but so many people who I follow on social media are interesting to me. Some of them are people who I have met in real life. Some of them are still waiting [for me to meet them].

Number One to me, and the person who really influenced my life with his books and writings, is Paulo Coelho…his best seller is The Alchemist and it is a life-changing book for so many people including myself.”
