Hello! I’m Anjali Huynh, a reporter pursuing a career in political journalism with a particular interest in how policy and power intersect with race, class, and other identities. A December 2022 graduate of Emory University, I hold a B.A. in Political Science and Sociology.
My reporting career got started in Iowa City, Iowa, where I fell in love with journalism through my high school paper, West Side Story. As politicians flocked to my home state ahead of the 2020 Iowa Caucuses, I set my sights on political reporting. I followed politicians around Eastern Iowa during my senior year for a local outlet and asked monumental figures, including President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, questions alongside national reporters.
Most recently, I helped cover the contentious 2022 midterms as a politics correspondent at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Previously, I’ve worked for the Boston Globe’s Express and Metro teams, NBC News’ Digital Politics section, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s local news team, CNN’s National Content Center, CNN Newsource DC, and Little Village Magazine. I also participated in the 2022 POLITICO Journalism Institute and 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 recent updates, find me on Twitter here.
