I’m Megan Janetsky, the Cuba and Caribbean Correspondent for The Associated Press, based in Havana, Cuba. 

Previously I worked as a Colombia-based freelance reporter and photographer covering migration, politics, human rights and more across Latin America. 

I worked as stringer for The New York Times and also work with National Geographic, The Washington Post, BBC, The Guardian, Reuters, Foreign Policy, Al Jazeera, The Atlantic, El País, USA Today, Poynter, and more. 

I've also previously reported from Guatemala, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, the U.S.-Mexico border and Washington D.C.

I grew up in Arizona, where the topic of migration was omnipresent in news and politics, but was often deeply misunderstood. In 2018, I moved to Colombia to cover the exodus from Venezuela. 

Today, my goal as a journalist is to connect untold human stories to politics and policy.

In my day-to-day, I can usually be found riding my bike around Havana or searching for places to scuba.

I graduated with a degree in journalism from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and I comply with the standards set forth by the SPJ Code of Ethics in all of my work. Read more about me on paper here or connect on Twitter. All inquiries to: meganjanetsky@gmail.com
