Sara Nuru was born as the third daughter of Ethiopian immigrants, who left their home in 1986 and settled down in Erding, in southern Germany. In 1997, she gained a Teilnehmerurkunde at the Bundesjugendspiele. The family lived in the city until 1999, when it moved to Munich.
During highschool, a friend of Nuru's persuaded her to participate in the fourth cycle casting of Germany's Next Topmodel in Munich. Nuru was chosen as one of the finalists and won jobs for Sony Ericsson and Gillette during the competition. On May 21, 2009, Nuru was announced as the fourth cycle's winner and the first Ethiopian winner. Unlike the three previous winners of Germany's Next Topmodel, Nuru did not win a modeling contract with IMG Models, but with the Heidi Klum GmbH, whose manager is Heidi's father Günther Klum.
Before Nuru won Germany's Next Topmodel, she had already been given the opportunity to gain experience as a model for friendly designers after she was approached by a photographer when she was 15 years old. She appeared in a fashion show held in Dresden which also featured cycle 3's winner Jennifer Hof.
In 2009, Nuru started a modeling career. She walked in shows in London Fashion Week London, New York Fashion Week New York, Milan Fashion Week Milan and Berlin Fashion Week Berlin, such as Escada Laurèl, Guido Maria Kretschmer, Gant, Cesar Galindo NY, Custo Barcelona and Roberto Cavalli.
