Maggie Seppi is currently a staff reporter at the Spinnaker, and she is training to become the daily news editor in the fall. She's majoring in communication with a focus in journalism and minoring in political science and English. She was born in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. and raised both there and in Stuart, Fla. She enjoys writing hard news stories, obviously. Among her favorite foods are Land O' Lakes white American cheese, Cheez-Its, spinach and artichoke dip, literally every fruit in existence and anything/everything that involves pasta and pesto, seperately or combined. But she'll eat almost anything since she eats constantly. Also, she loves clothes, specifically those that are high-wasted or loose fitting, and high buns. She uses the word reasonable often, in order to determine what things are and are not OK to proceed with thinking and/or doing. One day she will work at either TIME or NPR. She hopes both. Simultaneously. Immediately out of college. For the rest of her life. She is perpetually stressed out, but her idol, Joe Basco, makes it all a lil' easier.
