Nura received her law degree cum laude from the American University Washington College of Law and a bachelor of arts in criminal justice from The George Washington University.

Nura was born and raised in Haifa, Israel. Some of her fondest childhood memories took place in the kitchen, which may explain why she so thoroughly enjoys preparing, cooking, and eating Persian food. Her favorite dish is Khoresht Karafs, a celery stew, with rice and tahdig, the crispy bottom layer of rice cooked in a pot.
