New journalist joins The Observer team
My name is Noor.
I am a recently graduated journalist from Brisbane and the newest addition to The Observer's newsroom.
My last media adventure had me trek to Kalgoorlie in Western Australia, where I decided the grit of the Wild West was too much for my fragile city-dweller sensibilities.
Gladstone has been a refreshing change.
I am keen to meet the people of this city who, thus far, have been incredibly kind and generous.
For instance, last night a gentleman left the comfort of his apartment and used his security keycard to help me exit a locked carpark after I forced myself in, convinced it was where I needed to be.
It was not where I needed to be.
I hope to do my bit while I am here and tell as many interesting stories as I can.
When I am not working, you may find me discount-grocery shopping, desperately trying to save enough money for a holiday to beautiful Heron Island.
If you do ever see me on the street - no doubt looking very lost or stuck in a carpark I am not meant to be in - feel free to say hello.
More importantly, if you have a story, I'm all ears.
