Maggie Maseko: Alumni Success Story


Malawi-native Maggie Maseko considers her undergraduate degree from Missouri Baptist University a blessing – a blessing stemmed from her passion to serve her homeland.

Maggie (’12) and her sister Eddah (’12) arrived to MBU with the support of Texan physician, Dr. Donna Ivey. Maggie’s purpose for studying in America was clear – she wanted to become a physician to provide care to her village.

Since graduating from MBU, Maggie received a masters in health administration. She plans to study medicine specializing in pediatrics so she can help her village and country battle HIV, low life expectancy and high infant death rates.

This summer, she returned to her village to serve at the local hospital and clinic, and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with Child Legacy International to provide clean water to her fellow Malawians. Maggie’s initiative exceeded her $5,000 goal and she traveled with the organization after her climb to dig four wells and share the gospel with villages.

With passion and brilliance, Maggie is dedicated to serving and changing her country. Maggie will change her country, one life at a time.

A story of shining on.
