Youness was working as a tour guide in Morocco when he gave a tour to an American woman in Vermont. It was this encounter that would set him on a path to the United States in the year 2000, and his first marriage.
He misses Morocco, especially the social life but he has made connections with the Islamic Society of Vermont (ISVT) and engaged with the local community. He is now chairman of both ISVT’s Board of Trustees and of the Islamic School.
