Ayesha Minhaj: Early Life and Education
Ayesha is the younger sister to her elder brother Hasan. She was born to parents Najeme and Seema who were , from Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, India in 1989. However, the Muslim family later immigrated to California before Ayesha was born. Whilst her father was a chemist in California, her mother was a medical student. Hasan was born right in California and was raised there for the most part. Seema, however, had to move back to India to complete her medical school. So she went back to her home country and Najeme too would go on to visit his wife. She was then conceived and born in India. Seema after 8 long years of studying returned back to the States with Ayesha to rejoin the family.
Now coming to her academics, Ayesha has graduated from the University of California, LA with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science. As per reports, she was an amazing student and her parents were extremely proud of her. She next joined the University of Pennsylvania Law School and graduated with a Doctor of Law.

Ayesha and Hasan’s father made the announcement with a card that said, “Hasan, the results are in… you are a brother!”.
