After launching an internationally-recognized social media campaign, Noor is determined to achieve her dream of becoming the first hijabi anchor on commercial television in the United States. As she breaks down barriers, Noor Tagouri inspires others to do the same so that they can let their own light shine.

Since launching the viral #LetNoorShine campaign in 2012, Noor Tagouri has gained international attention as one of the country’s most talked about young adults. She has become an associate journalist for CBS Radio in Washington D.C, graduated from a top journalism school at 20, become a reporter in the DC metro area for CTV News and has traveled the globe as a motivational speaker. Noor has gained support for her efforts to break stereotypes and encouraging others to tackle their own potential. As a first generation Libyan-American, her passion for storytelling stems from the desire to expose cultural injustices and combat the challenges facing women. Tagouri’s extraordinary rise as a young journalist and budding cultural figure is proof of what can happen if we dare to ask the right questions.

Tarek Ali says:

They must kicked you out right now because you will never be successful anchor or reporter

Noor A says:

I cannot believe some of the comments here. Although she is wearing what she is wearing, what really shows her beauty is her words and impact, rather than the name-brand clothes ( which still look very beautiful ).

Solo 000 says:

Noor. Such an appropriate name. That was a great talk !

Sele Said says:

SHE IS WOW, IM SPEECHLESS

Silvrets Årtusende says:

TedX: not real rebels, fake rebels. There is nothing rebellious about adhering to the brainwashed mainstream narrative. Muslims are terrible people. You heard it here first. Come for the popcorn, stay for the racism.

Oliver Traveller says:

So she on her first day in school was already tought by her parents that she is something special "Muslim", while the other girl had no idea what she is talking about… Islam is the most dangerous threat that is facing humanity, but most have no clue… an ideology that belongs to the middle ages should be banned and not cheered up

Bon Chance says:

Islam is a Political Invasion Ideology
Allah states in the Koran that
''I am the Best of All LIARS''
in the Holy Bible it states that
''SATAN is the Father of All LIARS''
plain simple clear
we know Islam by it fruits
Violence Hatred Oppression.

Bon Chance says:

apparently Muslims think
Western Civilisation
is as Ignorant as Muslims obviously are.
Yes we know you are busily breeding
at the expense of Western Taxpayers
Yes we know Muslims are busily
infiltrating Politics
Yes we know the Muslim Brotherhood
is Dedicated to the Invasion of All Countries
''All will Bow to Allah''
or be killed
or be enslaved.
YES the WEST is Awake
Muslim ignorance is profound
understand this if nothing else
the West will NOT be conquered
plain simple clear.

Siham Dirani says:

omar karoush says:

she could have left and lived happily in her original country.. we in the era of take your clothes off and appease the lunar… what this women is wearing isn't hijab

James Madison says:

Send muslims back to their wonderful islamic countries where they can practice their cult of nonsense. They don't want to assimilate and they put their paedophile leader first.

SUFWAN NAUFAL says:

Prophet (saw) said: "Any woman who applies perfume and then goes out
among the people so that they could smell her fragrance is a zaaniyah
(adulteress)."
 (Reported by Imam Ahmad, 4/418;
see also Sahih al-Jaami', 105).
