Ageda Machuca

A Jersey-born and South Georgia-raised girl, Ageda a.k.a. Agee has had her fair share of city and country life. She moved to Savannah two years ago and has since been captivated by the history and charm of the city. She recently graduated from Armstrong State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Economics. Life after graduation for Agee has left her on a quest to test the waters to see where her talents can be acquired and challenged. Agee is also the administrative intern for the Savannah Children’s Choir and works for Savannah’s Visitor Centers. Some of Agee’s interests include photojournalism, impromptu photoshoots with friends, the occasional beach trips to Tybee Island, dancing the night away to some salsa or bachata music, and if time permits, blogging about her Agee Mac adventures.
