Most 23-year olds are just deciding what they want to be and what they want to do in life. But not Subhaan. In 2011, the entrepreneur, die-hard basketball fan, and high school junior known as SubTheGamer launched his own YouTube channel dedicated to playing and talking about sports video games. The then-teenager grew his audience to more than 270,000 subscribers (with 70 million views), ultimately launching a career that has given him exclusive access to the 2K Sports and Mortal Kombat studios, invitations to various NBA events, and even a feature role in a NBA Finals commercial featuring NBA MVP Kevin Durant.

Beyond sports and games and YouTube, Subhaan ultimately wants to use his influence to make a difference in the world. He memorized the Holy Qur’an at age 15, spent an entire year learning Basic Islamic sciences, and is a self-described family man. In addition, Subhaan is a certified life coach, motivational speaker, and the founder of several related companies.
