Personal Life and family background
Yousef was brought up in a religiously practicing Muslim family. Although he has struggled with his religious identity, he is seen criticizing the stereotypes regarding Muslims portraying their negative image several times.
But his visibly perfect life might not be the same as it seems. He has a video named “WHY I WANTED TO END MY LIFE”. In this video, he narrated one of the events of his life that might be an inspiration for many out there. Yousef once had 2 tattoos on his body. The tattoos caused him a nervous breakdown as the tattoos are not allowed in Islam. He ultimately removed them. Moreover, he constantly struggles with addiction, depression and bipolar disorder.
