Alexandra Huynh is an 18-year-old Vietnamese American poet from Sacramento, CA. She is a 2020 Sacramento Youth Poet Laureate, a program of Sacramento Area Youth Speaks, and is a Western Regional Ambassador and finalist for the 2021 National Youth Poet Laureate.

As a second-generation individual, Alexandra employs poetry as a tool of self-reclamation and social justice for marginalized communities. She embodies a radical pride in her Vietnamese heritage, and seeks to write her story outside of the context of whiteness. Through poetry, she hopes to give students a vocabulary to articulate their lived experiences and empower them to shape their future.

Her work has been featured by NPR, the Washington Post, and the Sacramento Bee among other platforms. This fall, she will be a freshman at Stanford University where she aims to combine her passions for creative writing, science, and civic engagement.
