Addy Baird is a journalist and student living in New York City

I'm a healthcare policy and politics reporter at POLITICO New York and an editor of NYU Local, a New York University news blog.

I'm working on my bachelor's degree at NYU with a double major in politics and journalism. My classes have focused on constitutional law, public policy, statistical politics, longform magazine writing, on the ground reporting, and multimedia journalism.

I'm also a yoga teacher, podcast lover, and workout fiend. I love New York City, comfortable jeans, and a good manicure.
