Associated Press Award for Individual Reporting. She got her start in news as a radio news reporter for WPTF in Raleigh, NC.
Anjali graduated from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. She spent most of her life growing up in northern Virginia, just outside of Washington D.C., but she also lived in Africa as a child. She spent 4
years in Niger and one year in Rwanda; until her family was forced to leave during the 1994 civil war.
