Hello! I’m Anjali Huynh, a 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. I’m interested in politics and race beat reporting and am actively seeking work after graduating in December 2022.
My reporting career got started in Iowa City, 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 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 my most recent updates, find me on Twitter here.
