BAILEY, THE RABBIT (Children's Picture Book)

Noreen creates stories that feature underrepresented characters, include social themes such as feminism, break common stereotypes, show diverse points of view, and introduce audiences to new concepts and ideas that are not typically seen in film and media. Her ultimate goal is to increase diversity, representation, and equity in film and to inspire people to make changes for a more compassionate and tolerant world, consider different perspectives, ask questions, and embrace themselves for who they are.
Her writing is also dramatic but balanced with light-heartedness. The stories that she creates explore characters who are figuring themselves out and discovering new situations that help them grow. She likes inviting audiences to join characters on their journeys while also experiencing humor and joy.
Noreen studied screenwriting and filmmaking at The New School. She has also written scripts for corporate videos.
