Yusuf Alaseeri.

My first name, Yusuf, is the Arabic version of Joseph, which means 'The lord increases' or 'God increases'. I was named after my grandfather.

My family name, Alaseeri, comes from the Arabic word 'Asir', which means 'Difficulties' or 'Hardships in life'. The family name comes from Asir Mountains, where my ancestors came from.

That means that my name is essentially 'God increases the difficulties in life'.

And that is why nothing is going as I had planned it.

    That's a pretty cool name! It's amazing that it also comes from the name of the mountains, like as if your family name takes after that place.

    Thanks for reading.
