Mackenzie Lynch
Communications Associate, VISTA

Mackenzie first heard word of 826CHI under streetlights in our nation's capital at 826DC, looking for new opportunities in nonprofit education and literacy programs. (Just outside of) Northeast Philadelphia born and raised, she ventured to the Midwest for school and fell in love with Chicago, first spending a semester interning in 826CHI's Publications and now returning as a Communications VISTA. She graduated from Knox College with a B.A. in Creative Writing and International Relations in 2017 and hopes to further her degree in the writing and education realms. You'll often spot her wearing a pair of overalls, drinking hot chocolate, or with a deck of cards in hand!
