"I put some money at the vending machine at the hospital because I know when you're in the hospital it's not a very happy time," said Nora. "I know I'm blessed and I'm fortunate with what I have but I'm realizing even more so."
On Friday, Nora spent the morning reading to kids at the Swann Special Care Center. She doesn't want any recognition for doing this, but she hopes to inspire people to pay it forward. Dozens have already joined her, including some at the university's Muslim Student Organization.
This month, Nora has also helped organize a fund to raise money for a 9-year-old with cerebral palsy who needed a wheelchair. To learn more about that, click here.
