Nour held a mic for the first time aged seven - and has been hooked ever since. After presenting her school broadcast for years, she joined The American University in Cairo (AUC) to major in multimedia journalism, graduating with honours and a fervent passion for radio and storytelling.
She currently works as a senior PR and media coordinator at AUC Venture Lab, a university-based startup accelerator. She is also a founder of Ehky Ya Masr, a local podcast covering life in Egypt that aims to give individuals the chance to share their stories in their own voice.
Nour was selected as a DICE Young Storymaker in 2019/20.
