Anna Warner, Communications


Anna Warner is a journalist and photographer with a passion for visual storytelling. She has written articles and shot photographs for numerous publications, including Beyond the Wall: Migrants, Migration and the Border, a long-form investigative journalism book on the impact of Mexican migration to Southern California. Most recently, she presented research at the national AEJMC conference in Washington, D.C. on the visual representation of refugees in association with terrorist events in the European media. She also cares deeply about social responsibility— she has participated in urban relief efforts and teaching English to Middle Eastern refugees in Greece, contributed to social development efforts in the Philippines in the wake of Typhoon Yolanda, and volunteered with DACA students in Southern California migrant communities. Anna recently moved back home to Charleston from Los Angeles and is excited to join the Darkness to Light team. She has a bachelor’s degree in Journalism & Integrated Media and an unhealthy obsession with finding the perfect cup of coffee

What did you want to be when you were little? I wanted to be a lot of things, but most often it switched between becoming an artist or Lois Lane. I guess I kind of figured out a way to get the best of both worlds.

What’s one thing people might not know about you? I’m a PADI certified scuba-diver— I love the ocean!
