Nora Mueller wasn't originally going to join quidditch but, luckily for us, she was convinced by two girls in her hall to attend open practice. There, she was told that if she attended two practices a week she could attend World Cup - which sounded like a pretty sweet deal to Nora. Additionally, the aggressive nature of quidditch appealed to Nora, who truly enjoyed tackling people. At her first practice, Nora tried out and played as a keeper. However, her teammates broke the news to her that, standing at 5'3'', she didn't fit the bill. Nora's favorite part of playing quidditch is when you're on the field as a beater and your teammate catches the snitch. As a beater, she says that you're pretty much the first person to see the catch, so the excitement is unparalleled.
Although she is known on the field for her aggressive playing, Nora is actually a very graceful and delicate dancer. She started dancing at the age of three at her town's community center. One of her prouder moments was receiving her toe shoes in grade 7. Nora loves dancing point because it makes her legs look very long - something that short people often don't get to experience. In high school, Nora joined her studio's competition team and she loved the feeling of being on stage. She says that dancing in front of an audience makes her feel like nothing else matters - the rush of adrenaline as you walk onto the stage makes her truly believe that she can be whoever she wants. At Tufts, Nora is minoring in dance and finds herself choreographing a lot, which is a very new and exciting experience for her.
At World Cup 7, Nora is looking forward to playing new teams, hanging out with the Tufflepuffs, and just generally having a blast.
