Clocking Out: Ahmed and Family Moving . . . to Qatar

And so the traveling circus takes its show abroad, permanently.​ Via the Dallas Morning News:

After finally meeting President Obama last night, Ahmed Mohamed and his family plan to leave the United States for the foreseeable future. . . .

The Mohameds announced today that they’ve accepted a foundation’s offer to pay for the 14-year-old’s high school and college in Doha, Qatar, which Ahmed visited a few weeks ago as he began a world tour.

His sister, Eyman Mohamed, said Ahmed will study at Doha Academy, while she and his other siblings find schools in the rich capital city, which hosts a huge university complex called Education City. . . .

“We are going to move to a plan where my kids can study and learn and all of them being accepted by that country,” said Ahmed’s father, Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed.

One wonders why the family opted against Sudan. They seemed so cozy there.
