He has spent most of his youth playing with his 6 years older brother who is still his big support and roots for him whenever he can.
He has American citizenship since he was born in the USA but his parents are immigrants so he always felt that the family was looked differently.
He loved playing video games from an early age, just like most other young boys did. He had spent hours playing it but his mother let him because he wasn’t only into sitting and playing but he was also very interested in sport and workout.
So his mother was happy that he was still leading a quite healthy life. She was a very protective mother and she invested a lot of her time in her sons although she had worked hard.
He was a pupil in elementary school when he started being a skilled gamer since he had spent most of his free time playing video games.
He was only 12 years old when he began uploading material on his YouTube channel and created his YouTube vlog. He had dreams about getting famous and his dream later did come true.
It was in 2008 and from then he managed to step up his game a lot so he became one of the most successful gamers to whom many other players look up to.
Yousef grew up alongside his older brother whom he respects very much and who often visits him on his matches.
When he later made a career out of playing games his mother was sometimes heard in the background of his videos.
She didn’t like him to play video games so much as a kid but when he later became successful she had to admit that she was wrong about the fact that she thought he would never be able to financially support himself.

After joining faze clan he renamed it to FaZe Apex and today has over 5 million subscribers and millions of views on his videos. FaZe Apex has a little bit different lifestyle than his friends from the clan and likes to be very close to the community. He also likes spending times outdoors more than others.
This decision to join their clan caused Yousef’s transfer to the city of New York because it was the city where Faze Clan had their gaming house and lived together. Yousef was very appreciated for his enthusiasm as their new member.
His mother was happy for him but she was also sad because he left his home and she stayed without both of her sons who relocated due to their careers.
