My name is Anjali Huynh. I am a rising junior at Emory University studying political science and quantitative sciences aiming to pursue political journalism.
Previously, I wrote for Iowa City West High’s student newspaper West Side Story for three years, ending my senior year as the Print Managing Editor and Co-Copy Editor. I now serve as News Writer for Emory’s student publication, The Emory Wheel. Additionally, I served as an Editorial Intern and now freelance writer for Little Village Magazine and have several bylines in The Cedar Rapids Gazette.
Journalism is undoubtedly my greatest passion. I find joy in conversations with strangers, in shocked expressions as readers pore over uncovered truths, and in smiles from grateful sources whose voices were made heard. It is through journalism that I learned a vital lesson: student voices are often hidden under a sea of adults belittling younger members of society. This makes our stories even more vital to uncover and share. As part of the next generation of journalists, I strive to act as a liaison between individuals and my audience, practicing as a storyteller utilizing various mediums.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. You can find more of my political coverage on my Twitter profile here.
