Hello! I’m Anjali Huynh, a rising senior at Emory University studying political science and sociology. I’m pursuing a career in journalism with a focus on how politics and policy intersect with race and other marginalized identities. For those at #AAJA22, I’m particularly interested in learning more about politics and race beat reporting, as well as audience work, and am actively seeking work after graduating in December 2022.
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 and asked monumental figures like President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris questions alongside journalists from around the country.
Currently, I’m working as a news intern with the Boston Globe covering news for the metro and express sections. Previously, I’ve also participated in the POLITICO Journalism Institute and worked for NBC News’ Digital Politics team, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, CNN’s National Content Center, CNN Newsource DC, and Little Village Magazine. I also served as the executive editor for Emory’s student publication The Emory Wheel, where I oversaw news and DEI efforts.
When I’m not overthinking any given story, you can find me purchasing $8 coffees, exploring Atlanta restaurants, or rewatching the same five Marvel movies. For my most recent updates, find me on Twitter here.
