In early July Yassmin Abdel-Magied was “infuriatingly” frustrated “to have worked for years as an engineer, only to have that erased from my public narrative.”

Further along in the same Guardian article:

I am a 25-year-old Muslim engineering chick, born in the Sahara desert, whose words occasionally find themselves in the public arena.

Less than three weeks later, Abdel-Magied’s engineering degree is no longer so important:

That’s Abdel-Magied trying to further brand Yassmin by drawing the attention of online personality Philip DeFranco – 989,000 Twitter followers and 5,589,017 You Tube subscribers.
