OW Spotlight: Mallory Bazinet, Co-Chair of Silent Auction for IGNITE the NITE 2014
“Alone we can do so little;
together we can do so much”
How did you get involved with GLOW and what is your current role or contribution?
It’s hard to say whether or not I found Boston GLOW or GLOW found me. When I heard about the organization I was inspired to hear that women in the Boston community were volunteering their time to inspire each other to become leaders. Their mission resonated with me and I wanted to help in any way I could.
I’m contributing to Boston GLOW this year by directing Ignite the Nite’s silent auction to raise scholarship funds for our future girl leaders.
Who are your female role models?
My role models are women who are kind to each other. Females who don’t judge each other. Girls who believe in themselves against all odds. Women who dare to dream and take chances. Women who care about the community they live in. Good mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts. These women are my role models.
What inspires your passion empowering and advancing the role of women in the world?
If we could remind each other every day that we all have the power to affect positive change in the community, then this would be a better world to live in. Boston GLOW has given me the platforms to do just that- remind other women how important they are and in return that empowers me. Maybe that’s selfish, or maybe it’s good karma in action.
Who is your female hero?
Helen Keller. Her story inspires me to dig deep within myself when I feel overcome by an obstacle. A woman who came into this world without a hope and left the world inspired by hope. You might never be able to see the future, but you can most certainly have a vision of who you want to become.
