Hello! I’m Anjali Huynh, a junior at Emory University studying political science and sociology that’s pursuing a career in journalism with a focus on how politics and policy intersect with race and other marginalized identities.
My reporting career got started in the great state of Iowa. After falling in love with journalism through my high school paper, West Side Story, where I worked and edited for three years, I set my sights on political journalism. As politicians flocked to the state ahead of the 2020 Iowa Caucuses, I followed politicians around Eastern Iowa during my senior year, asking monumental figures like President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris questions alongside journalists from around the country.
Currently, I’m working as a digital politics intern with NBC News and just ended my year-long term as the executive editor for Emory’s student publication The Emory Wheel, where I oversaw news and DEI. Previously, I’ve also been an intern for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, CNN’s National Content Center, CNN Newsource DC, and Little Village Magazine. I also have several bylines in The Cedar Rapids Gazette.
When I’m not overthinking about any given story, you can find me purchasing $7 lattes, exploring Atlanta restaurants, or rewatching the same five Marvel movies. For my most recent updates, follow me on Twitter here.
