McKenzie is a sophomore from Cornelius, N.C., studying Communication and Politics & International Affairs with a minor in Journalism. Prior to coming to Wake Forest, McKenzie had no experience with journalism. But after taking a few classes and working for the Old Gold & Black, she quickly fell in love with interviewing and journalistic writing. McKenzie is a foodie who loves traveling, yoga, skiing and creating Spotify playlists. She also enjoys studying in the ZSR Starbucks just so she can talk to people as they pass by to go into the library. In addition to her work with the Old Gold & Black, she is a Student Adviser, member of Tri Delta, and an avid supporter of Wake's football and basketball teams. She hopes to one day pursue a career in journalism or politics and is thankful to the Old Gold & Black for giving her the experience to grow as a journalist.
