Current Update: Football season is back, and Yusuf couldn’t be happier about that! Beyond following his favorite teams in real life (NFL: Dallas Cowboys; NCAA: Virginia Tech Hokies), Yusuf is managing three fantasy football teams this year. He hopes to repeat as champion of both the Yeske Buie league and the league in which he plays with his in-laws – winning that league makes him really popular with Maegan’s family around the holidays. And, for the first time ever, Yusuf’s childhood friends have come together to form a league, and nothing would top the opportunity to bring home three championships to close 2015 in style – stay tuned!

Aside from football, Yusuf will be spending time doing volunteer work for FPA’s National Capital Area chapter (he is serving as the PR & Media Relations Director this year) and the Recent Alumni Board (RAB) for Virginia Tech’s Pamplin College of Business. The RAB has made significant headway with several initiatives in its first few months, and Yusuf is looking forward to sharing an update about the board’s progress at the business school’s 50th anniversary gala in December.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
