Education and early life
Adam was raised in New York State alongside his three sisters and two brothers, by their Muslim Yemeni parents; not many details have been disclosed about Adam’s parents because he respects their privacy, but it’s believed that they were both high school teachers.
Adam spent three years attending the high school Manhattan Center For Science and Mathematics, but was then expelled because he hit his dean’s computer after the dean allegedly made racist remarks towards Adam’s mother. He continued his education at Al-Madinah School, from which he matriculated in 2011.
Adam’s initial dream was to enroll at college and become a lawyer, however, he eventually gave up on the dream, as he was unable to pay the college tuition.
