Ahmed Mohamed, 14, has been the center of attention since being led from his high school in handcuffs Monday, suspected of bringing a homemade bomb — which turned out to be a homemade clock — to school.

In addition to the prayer vigil and the presidential invitation, Mohamed has reportedly been offered internships and jobs by numerous companies, including Twitter.
