    Did Obama appoint Fatima Noor as assistant director of American Citizenship and Immigration?


    Origins: On 3 July 2014, the University of Memphis announced three of its graduate students, including a woman named Fatima Noor, had landed full-time positions with the Obama administration:
    Fatima Noor will be a special assistant in the Office of the Director for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in the Department of Homeland Security beginning July 28.

    Noor majored in psychology with minors in Spanish and international relations. She recently completed a month-long research fellowship in psychology hosted by Carnegie-Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh; her research will be ongoing for this program. Noor was a leader in many honor societies at the U of M. She has done volunteer work with World Relief Memphis and the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition.
    The announcement stirred up consternation in some circles because Noor appears to be Muslim: She does not identify her religious affiliation on her LinkedIn profile, but she was photographed wearing Hijab for her profile on the Muslim Media Network. This circumstance prompted the disreputable Before It's News web site to publish an article titled "ALERT! Obama Appointment Fatima Noor Asst Director for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration! WHAT!" on 31 August 2014. The article quoted directly from the University of Memphis announcement but incorrectly identified Noor's position at USCIS as "assistant director."

    According to the Memphis Business Journal, the position landed by Noor is one typically filled by graduates of Ivy League schools. Rosie Phillips Bingham, vice president for Student Affairs at the University of Memphis, said of Noor's appointment:
    The University of Memphis graduates exceptional students who make significant differences in the world. These three students are stellar examples. They competed with students from the country's most elite institutions and they prevailed. More importantly, these three will do a superior job for the Obama administration.

    She graduated from the University of Memphis. :huhldup: A Youtuber got a masters from there. He decided to then go to law school. He studied 4 months for the LSAT and got a 133.

    She speaks English, Somali, Spanish, Danish, and some Arabic. Her language skills got her the job.

    Its not a bad school if you plan on excelling (Honors Program, Phi Betta Kappa, national awards like Fullbright, Marshall, Rhodes, etc). I don't know how someone got a 133 on the LSAT after studying, I took it cold and got a 161 the first time.
    She's very pretty though, good for her.
