Apply To Be Onward State Sweetheart Mackenzie Cullen’s Valentine

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and some of you might still be on the hunt for your lucky lady. If dating apps aren’t cutting it and the bars are too packed, we have an in-house solution.

Meet one of our associate editors, Mackenzie Cullen. And yes, she’s related to the Cullen family from Twilight. She is a senior English major from Minersville, Pa., who will also respond to “Mack,” “Mofenzie,” and our personal favorite, “Gourd.” She loves a good night out at Gaff or a chill night at Cafe with some skillet fries. If going out isn’t your thing, she’ll happily stay in and watch reality TV with you.

Here’s a look at our very own bachelorette:

Mackenzie is looking for a lad who is tall, funny, and will be just as excited as her (if not more) when a new episode of “Euphoria” drops. She enjoys listening to music, watching old Disney Channel classics like “High School Musical,” and playing Webkinz once in a while in her spare time.

Here’s everything you might need to know about our Gaff girl:

Name: Mackenzie Rosemary Cullen
Age: 22
From: Minersville, Pa. “Literally Google it because it’s too hard to explain where it is,” she said.
Looking For: A man who will drunkenly eat Canyon pizza with her on the sidewalk after singing Taylor Swift at Gaffeoke
Likes: Gaffeoke, reality TV, volleyball, “Parks and Rec,” the Food Network, being tall, the Jonas Brothers (Nick is obviously the best – don’t be shy, let’s debate)
Dislikes: Snapchat, TikTok, mansplaining, bar cover fees, yelling, and slow walkers
Fun fact: She’s won six Grammys for all of her Gaffeoke performances!

If you think Mackenzie is the gal for you, apply to be her Valentine today. Best of luck!
