Ever wonder how the most successful politicians get the guidance to make sound decisions? I wonder no more because that’s what Huma Abedin is paid to do. The George Washington University graduate is Hillary Clinton’s trusted adviser, particularly on matters concerning the Middle East.

Huma also worked for Clinton as Deputy Chief of Staff while she was US Secretary of State. Over the years, she has gradually grown to be one of Hillary’s closest associates, as she is now commonly referred to as “Hillary Clinton’s secret weapon.”

Who is Huma Abedin?

Huma was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan on July 28, 1976. Being an American citizen, Huma is of Indian descent as her father Syed Zainul Abedin and mother Saleha Mahmood Abedin are from India. She has two siblings, a brother and a sister. When Huma was two, her parents decided to move to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia where she, alongside her siblings, got some of their basic education before eventually moving to the United States.

Huma’s father was born in New Delhi, India, and he attended the University of Pennsylvania where he earned his doctorate. He was the founder of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs and the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs. He created these organizations to facilitate the study of Islam in non-Islamic countries. Her mom was also an academic just like her dad. She attended the same school as him but was born in Pakistan.

Before Huma got her prestigious job as one of Clinton’s aides, she attended George Washington University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism with a minor in political science. It was during her internship at the White House in 1996 that she started working for Hillary Clinton who was then the First Lady of the United States of America.

Salary and net worth

The Michigan-born political staffer has an overall net worth of $2 million. Most of her wealth comes from her work at the Clinton Foundation and as an adviser to Clinton. In 2016, she was mentioned as the highest-paid US presidential campaign staffer, as she had an annual salary of over $277,000. It was for her role as vice president in Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Along with her financial accomplishments and popularity as Clinton’s right-wing wife, Huma won the Cinema Eye Honors Award for “Weiner” in 2017. Under 40 from Time.

Huma Abedin is a bit of a fashion enthusiast. She likes to wear the latest outfits from notable clothing manufacturers when she attends important events. Some of her favorite designers include Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs and Prada.

Her husband and son

Huma Abedin married in July 2010 to Anthony Weiner who was a member of the United States House of Representatives once from January 3, 1999 to June 21, 2011.

Weiner was born on September 4, 1964 in Borough, Brooklyn, located in New York. His parents are Jewish. From his youth and studies, he was interested in politics and won the title of the most effective student senator.

It is historical to note that her marriage to Huma Abedin was solemnized by the then President of the United States, Bill Clinton. Unfortunately, their marriage was dissolved in 2017.

The estranged couple have a son whose name is Jordan Main Weiner. He was born in December 2011. Jordan Weiner’s birth came at a time when his father’s political career came to an end due to the scandals around his neck.

Anthony Weiner married his political activities with sending sexual images of himself to a brunette woman. This led to him being sentenced to prison. After their official separation, their son, Jordan, was placed in the custody of his mother.

Where is Huma Abedin now?

Huma Abedin recently faced serious allegations of breaching protocol security. Earlier this year (February 2018), US President Donald Trump tweeted that she should be jailed for the allegations against her. Fortunately for Huma, the investigations carried out by the FBI did not lead to any facts that incriminated him.

Huma was spotted on several occasions hosted by the garment industries after Clinton lost her campaign for the presidency in 2016. She was seen on April 17, 2018, attending a celebrity party with Sienna Miller.
