Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old boy who was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school, gave a press conference Wednesday where he thanked supporters and talked about his hopes for the future.
“When I showed it to her, she thought it was a threat to her,” Mohamed said of the teacher at MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas who thought his clock was a bomb, reports NBC. “It was really sad she took a wrong impression of it.”
But during the press conference, Mohamed explained what he really wants to do: go to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for college. In the meantime, he added, “I’m thinking about transferring from McArthur to any different school.”
