Anusha Chinthalapale

Anusha joined the American Youth Policy Forum as a Research and Policy Intern in January 2022. She primarily works internally with policy research and compilation.

Prior to AYPF, Anusha worked with a multitude of organizations, PACs, and companies to better understand the range of political involvement. She most recently completed two internships concerned with federal and private grant research and political press coverage. She also served as a state intern with U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (MD) at the beginning of the pandemic, handling constituent services and public research.

In May of 2020, Anusha had an article published in the George Washington University Undergraduate Law Review titled, “The Unfinished Business of Brown v. Board of Education: How ‘Separate but Equal’ Still Prevails in Present Day High School Systems.” The article discusses de-facto segregation as a large mitigating obstacle to equitable education for all. Her passion for education equity can largely be attributed to her home in Montgomery County, MD, where students are consistently and confidently speaking out against barriers to racial, gender, and economic equity as well.

Anusha is slated to graduate from Washington D.C.’s George Washington University in May 2022 with a B.A. in Political Science.
