MacKenzie Stuart

MacKenzie is a recent graduate of Fordham University, where she studied International Political Economy and English and wrote columns for the Fordham Political Review. Now, she’s happy to be writing articles that bring people together through the indisputable fact that reading is awesome. A certifiable Potterhead, MacKenzie also loves the Uglies series and anything by Madeleine L’Engle. When she’s not sharing her thoughts about everything from the best horror flicks to eye-opening memoirs, MacKenzie busies herself by playing with her sweet nieces or motivating her elderly Labrador Retriever to walk just one more lap around the neighborhood.
