Humas formative years were spent in Saudi Arabia absorbing her parents Muslim Minority Affairs agenda. She returned to the United States from Saudi Arabia to attend George Washington University, where she was an executive board member of George Washington Universitys Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Muslim Students Association. The creation of the Muslim Students Association had resulted from Saudi-backed efforts to establish Islamic organizations internationally in the 1960s, for the purpose of spreading Wahhabist ideology across the globe. It is not surprising that Huma gravitated towards this organization when she left Saudi Arabia to attend college in the United States.
Huma also carried out her parents work. She served as an assistant editor for the IMMAs Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs for twelve years, leaving shortly before she joined Hillary Clintons State Department in 2009. Her brother Hassan Abedin and sister Heba Abedin still serve in that capacity.
