“I don’t really get nervous before performances. I always get really excited. I love the exhilaration and the rush of being backstage and walking on the main stage and waiting for the music to start. We just hit it and have that adrenaline rush and then coming off after feeling like the performance was only three seconds,” Noor Singh (12) said.

Unlike most teenagers who cherish sleeping in, Noor prefers to wake up early and watch sunrises with her friends or working out.

“I’m such a morning person,” she said. “I’m up at 6 a.m. no matter what.”

Her active personality motivated her to pursue hiking and run marathons with her father. It also fostered a love of travelling.

“[I’ve] been out of the country a bunch of times,” she said. Her greatest memories from vacationing have been with friends and family.

“We went to Alabama for the Fourth of July to visit my family friends and it was so much fun,” she said. “Everyone there has a lake house and we were all just on the lake watching boats, and that’s when I realized that it didn’t matter where I was, but who I was with.”

Noor has danced since the age of 9, and she participates on the varsity dance team at school.

“I love the exhilaration and the rush of being backstage and walking on the main stage and waiting for the music to start,” she said. “We just hit it and have that adrenaline rush, and then [come] off after feeling like the performance was only three seconds.”

Noor cites her parents as some of her greatest influences, as they have instilled the values of kindness and humility in her.

“My parents always have taught me to be kind and to be humble, to try to be nice to everyone and always be kind” she said. “They’ve always taught me to accept everything how it is and to do what I can but not be upset when things don’t work out.”

Noor is extremely humble in her actions and chooses to see the best in people. She makes the best out of every situation and every opportunity.

“I think I motivate myself,” she said. “I want to be remembered as someone who’s really nice to everyone and that was always there to give a helping hand to anyone who needs it.”

Noor’s family taught her to never turn her back on someone in need and to accept things how they are. But above all, Noor is kind.
