Mackenzie Bedford: Social Media Specialist/Intern – Fall 2017

Iphone, always.

What is the best thing to do on a cold rainy day?
Curl up on the couch with a cozy blanket, cup of tea, a good book, and my cats.

Go on a long hike, or sit on the beach with a good book and cold drink.

Fiction or nonfiction?
Both, but my original love is fiction.

If you can live in any other decade where would it be?
As enamored as I am with the 20s and the 60s, I don’t think that I would chose to live in another decade. Always forward, never backward.

Last country you visited?
My last trip took me to five different countries, but the last one was England.

The most beautiful place I’ve ever seen is the Island of Capri in Italy. So many colors and such blue water.

I would love to go to Vietnam, Spain, and Morocco.

You are hosting a dinner party and can invite 5 historical figures, dead or alive. Who would they be?
I would invite Zelda Fitzgerald, J.K. Rowling, Michelle Obama, Neil Gaiman, and Roxane Gay.

What is one world issue that you wish you could solve?
I wish I could solve racial discrimination in America. I believe that no-one is born hating another person because of their color of skin, religion, gender, or culture. Why cant we just understand that we are all one race, the human race.
