Hoor Alnuaimi is currently a senior at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) completing a double major in Political Science and Literature.

Earlier this year, she was an oralist and author at the 2020 Philip C. Jessup International Moot Court Competition. Hoor is also passionate about Arabic literature, where she studies how Arabic literature encounters politics and travels through language.

At Oxford, Hoor hopes to continue morphing the borders between politics, diplomacy, literature and translation.
