Mackenzie Vieth

It wasn't until college that she became involved with the liberty movement through Young Americans for Liberty, and learned something is afoot on our college campuses - and it isn't education. She is currently an undergrad at Lindenwood University majoring in religion, with a personal passion for anthropology. The plan was to become a professor of world religions, but instead she realized she could channel that love for other cultures towards effectively spreading this philosophy of liberty to all kinds of people. In her free time when she isn't hosting activism events as president of her Young Americans for Liberty chapter or visiting other campuses as a Missouri State Chair for YAL - Mackenzie is an avid bookworm, blogger, and cosplayer!
