Mavlyn Jo-Ann Bazil
I intend to create and establish a career that incorporates my passion for international social work, immigrants, women who have experienced gender-based and sexual violence, forensics, and policy. My commitment to continuing my service as the education director for women and girls of the Maasai Tribe in Kajedo, Kenya, with the non-profit organization Ark of Hope Community Center, LLC., remains. Likewise, I intend to continue serving individuals within my church, pageantry, military, and Howard County communities. The University of Maryland School of Social work has armed me with the professional knowledge needed to influence my sphere of service. I promise to remain a force to be reckoned with in both professional and social contexts.
I thank God for my Family (Yvonne, Jonathan, Joaull, Jahmal, and Jovannie), Friends (Wogahata, Featherine, Eva, Lani, and Maya), and my Mount Jezreel Baptist Church family, who have remained in prayer, encouragement, and support throughout this journey. Your love along with this scriptural passage carried me throughout this chapter; "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (First Thessalonians 5: 16-18 [ESV])."
