Hi! My name is Mackenzie but I usually just go by Mac. I am a 21-year-old senior at St. Bonaventure University graduating in May 2018. I'm earning a BA in Communications, double majoring in journalism & mass communication and strategic communications & digital media and minoring in English.
I adore writing and being creative. Creating and editing content is one of my favorite hobbies. I'm also passionate about motivating and inspiring people to be their best selves. I have a college lifestyle blog where I talk about anything and everything I've learned about being a college student.
Empowering women has been a main focus of mine throughout my college career, and something I will strive to focus on post-graduation. During my junior year, I interned for New York State Women Inc., where I developed skills in social media graphics and market research. In the summer of 2017, I was a digital media and marketing intern in New York City for UNLEASHED by Kara Ross, a company dedicated to inspire confidence and empower women through education and microfinance opportunities. During my senior year, I was honored to be the Dr. Mary A. Hamilton Woman of Promise Award recipient - it gave me even more motivation and inspiration to hone my career interests into empowering women.
I recently accepted an internship offer with LOFT to work with their performance marketing team this summer! After working in the store as a sales associate since my freshman year, I realized that is where I gained an interest in women empowerment... fashion inspires confidence! Having the opportunity to work for a brand that strives to promote the same values I have is incredible. I'm so excited to see where this post-graduation journey takes me; stay tuned.
