Yasir is 29 years old.  He currently resides in Cleveland with his brother and parents, but immigrated to the United States in 2015.  He had an extensive education prior to immigrating including a Bachelor Degree in Technology (Computer Science) from a university in New Delhi, India.  According to Yasir, when he arrived in the U.S., it was very difficult for him to obtain a job in his field.  Few employers would recognize his degree and he lacked any professional experience in his field on study.
