Noor is a wanderer, educator and poet. She completed her undergrad at Concordia University in Creative Writing with a minor in English Literature, and her Masters in Education at the University of Ottawa with a concentration in Societies, Cultures and Languages. Her research interests involve community-directed and anti-oppressive approaches, and spoken word poetry as a way to listen to otherwise marginalized youth voices name/resist their own oppression(s) and tell their counternarratives. 

Previously, she acted as the Project Manager for the Réseau de Savoir sur l’Équité | Equity Knowledge Network (RSEKN), hosted by the Faculty of Education and Centre for Research on Educational and Community Services (CRECS) at the University of Ottawa.


Most recently, she is the Creative Director of This Is Not A Resilience Story, and the co-host and co-producer of the RSEKN Equity Podcast Series.
