Nora AlMatrooshi – Personal Life and Inspiration

Personal Life and Inspiration:

AlMatrooshi’s fascination with space began at a young age, with her passion nurtured through stargazing events and lessons about space at school. She views His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid as her role model, who taught her that success is possible through determination and persistence. In the field of space exploration, her role model is Neil Armstrong, the first human to walk on the Moon. She lives by the motto of ‘Do what makes you happy.’

AlMatrooshi dreams of elevating the country’s name in the global space sector and continue fulfilling the vision of the late founding father Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan to raise the flag of the UAE ever higher in the field of space exploration. On a personal level, AlMatrooshi aspires to develop the space sector in the UAE further and ultimately land on the Moon on board an Emirati spacecraft.

AlMatrooshi’s hobbies include reading, writing, drawing and horseback riding, in addition to stargazing.
