Growing up, Maher lived in a one-bedroom apartment with his four siblings in Brooklyn, New York. At an incredibly young age, Maher struggled to learn in school and was labeled as incompetent. He was constantly bullied and therefore lacked motivation and self-confidence.
At the age of nine, it was discovered he was dyslexic. Recognizing he was not what everyone branded him to be, he decided to push himself to improve his grades. In the eighth grade, he spotted an opportunity to try out for the school’s basketball team. Determined to play basketball, he actively worked to develop his grades and improve his basketball skills, which resulted in him earning a spot on the team.
