Ahmed Mohamed, also known as “Clock Boy,” seems to be homesick after living in Qatar and longs for Texas!
The Dallas Morning News reporting that he may be back in Texas within days, only nine months after moving away.
Clock Boy was the 14-year-old Irving, Texas high school freshman who was detained last year for bringing a makeshift clock-in-a-box for a science project that looked much like a “hoax bomb.”
The Dallas Morning News reports:
It’s been nine months since Ahmed Mohamed’s ill-fated attempt to impress his teachers with a homemade clock upended his life, his hometown of Irving and much of the internet.
After being sent to juvi on a hoax bomb charge — and later to the White House as a symbol of anti-Muslim bias — the teen finally escaped viral celebrity and a backlash by leaving the hemisphere.
Since last fall, Ahmed and his family have been living in Qatar, where he’s finishing high school on a royal family-funded scholarship.
“He miss[es] Texas, and he miss[es] Irving,” said Aldean Mohamed, the teen’s uncle.
Clock Boy is flying into to Dallas early next week for an extended stay. Looks like the grass is not greener!
Less than 24 hours after Ahmed Mohamed had met Obama, his family decided to leave America for good.
I have always felt he was encouraged by the Obama administration as another piece of Obama’s “America is bad” propaganda. The decision was made in Washington, DC.
Then they decided they should get fifteen million dollars from the City of Irving, and full apologies from the mayor and police chief.
Yeah! Just try getting that in any other nation of the world. Most places in the world would have placed the child in prison for the stunt! Clock Boy received fame, money, and a visit with the leader of the free world.
Maybe his time in a country with “not so much” freedom opened the eyes of little Clock Boy?
Doubt it… but at least he knows Texas is better than Qatar!
