Noor Khan will never be found wasting any time. With distinguishing qualities that make her a great student on campus and great player on the field, there is almost nothing that can stop Noor. When it comes to Noor Khan, no obstacle is too great, no dream too big.

Whether it is athletics or academics, Noor Khan can do it. With her amazing passion in everything she does and her altruistic personality, Noor can truly do anything. During her high school career she has accomplished plenty and although it has been stressful, being the person she is, Noor can take on whatever comes her way.

Noor is currently a member of the Varsity lacrosse team where she currently plays defense. As a freshman, with lacrosse being a fairly new sport for her, Noor states, “At first I did not know what coach expected from me, so the first couple of months I was really nervous.” Although she says it was nerve-wracking at first, one would never know she even lacked a bit of confidence. Even with that little drawback, Noor’s perseverance helped her to become one of the top players on the team and admired greatly by the coaches. Noor is quite busy, but her passion in the sport she plays has kept her to be proficient.

Along with excelling at lacrosse, Noor is also a great student. Her workload is heavy and sports take up plenty of her time, but she puts her mind to what she needs to do and gets it done. She has been in CSF since she was a freshman and NHS since she was a sophomore, showing that she is very dedicated. Noor’s drive to do well in everything has kept her with impressive grades. Noor aims to attend UCSD and study psychology in hope of becoming a therapist.

Where Noor also shines is with her generosity and care for the community. Noor volunteers 2 times a week at St. Jude Hospital. She assists in different departments, acting as a sense of comfort for patients; talking to them to help reduce anxiety and help them feel like they are in a safe place.

Although Noor is a killer athlete and an outstanding student, she also is human and needs time to de-stress. She does this by hanging out with friends, going shopping, or just sitting at home and watching a good movie. Being a person who can work her hardest and have time to have fun is hard, but Noor being a focused, passionate, and motivated girl can do whatever her heart desires.
