Kasim is from Brooklyn, New York, and was in his third year of college in New York City at the time of his interview. He spent his days “usually working…working takes up most of my time. When school comes back, that takes even more time, but I still try to have my downtime and hang out with my friends.”

Kasim’s Most Likely To Is: "Most Likely to Work Towards the Lifestyle I’m Trying to Live"

He explained why talking about his rapidly gentrifying neighborhood of Crown Heights, Brooklyn is “bittersweet”.

Kasim shared some of his memories from his childhood days as an “innocent” kid, and reminisced about how his life goals shifted after his childhood plans to become a doctor “went through the roof”.

We also talked about the difference between his “social media friends” and the friends he spends time with on a regular basis.
