On this morning's Today show, Ann Curry interviewed Alia Sabur, who, at 18, became the youngest professor in the history of the United States. Sabur, now 19, is refreshingly adorable and normal — certainly mature for her age, but completely humble about her achievements. She teaches physics and math at Southern University in New Orleans, a school so destroyed by Katrina that students are still attending classes in trailers. Sabur wanted to teach there because she wanted to help Katrina victims but knew she wasn't good at building houses. "I tried to do what I'm good at," Sabur explained. A voice over notes that Sabur "loves celebrity gossip websites," and pans to a shot of Alia looking at Jezebel. Full clip above.
