Will Mazurek has lived in Austin for most of his life, though he has travelled extensively due to having spent 4 years in the Navy. He says that Japan was his favorite place to live and that the people there are incredibly friendly and willing to share their culture.
Will went to college at Southwestern University where he majored in history and anthropology prior to joining the Navy. Now he works full-time for a data center management company where he travels often for work, while also taking more undergraduate classes under the GI Bill. Will shares that while he does enjoy the occasional quiet weekend watching football on TV, he spends most of his free time with his nephews as well as his close friends and their families.
Will started volunteering with CASA and working with teenagers over a year ago. Community and civil service has been in his family for generations so he feels CASA, along with his military service, is ensuring he continues that family tradition.
“I’m trying to make sure that everything I put out in the world is positive and beneficial to everybody,” says Will. “I knew when I came for my first interview I was doing this for myself as much as for the kids, but that part doesn’t even occur to me now. What’s going on with the kids is the most important thing. I just try to act as a liaison between adulthood and where they are right now in their lives.”
