What kind of girls was she? Noor was an all American teenage girl. She called her friends dude. At school she played tennis on the tennis team. She worked on the yearbook. Pesta wrote about Noor for Marie Claire magazine. Her friends told me her hair was always perfect. [LAUGH] She could always be counted on to have a bottle of hairspray handy. She had a foot in two worlds. She had one foot in suburban America, and one foot in Middle-Eastern traditions. That's Noor in white, modeling at a local Middle-Eastern event. Did she struggle with trying to straddle both of those cultures? Absolutely. You know, in public, she just tried to put on a brave face. She just tried to live her life and then enjoy the freedoms that America offered her. In private, she fought with her father all the time.
