Nuseir “Nas” Yassin is a Palestinian-Israeli who grew up in the village of Arraba in the country’s northern district. Fluent in Arabic, Hebrew, and English, he left Israel in 2010 to attend Harvard University on a full scholarship, where he graduated in 2014 with degrees in economics and computer science. Twenty months into his first post-college job as a software coder for Venmo, Nas made the decision that would change his life: to quit his job, gather his savings, and travel the world, sharing his adventures and discoveries on his dedicated Facebook page, Nas Daily. On January 5, 2019, Nas reached Day 1,000 of Nas Daily, having garnered an international audience of 12 million followers and 4.5 billion video impressions. He continues to post weekly videos on Nas Daily and has relocated to Singapore, where he is launching a media and video company with his best friends.
