Rigoberta Menchú is the leader of a mass movement for the recovery of civil rights of the indigenous Mayan people living in Guatemala. Advocating on behalf of her people, Menchu's efforts have been recognized worldwide and she was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1992.
Enemchi has always lived in Boston. She enjoys journaling and hopes to start scrapbooking. Currently a sophomore at Boston Latin School, one of her favorite subjects is history. She has been in the Seevak website competition for three years, although this is her first year completing a project.
Emily is a junior at Boston Latin School who is interested in art and design as well as advancing the cause of social justice. She joined forces with Sreeja and Enemchi on the Seevak website competition because she believes that the work Rigoberta does is important. Mainly, she supported the project by providing digital and traditional artwork.
Sreeja is in her Junior year at BLS and this is her first Seevak project. Apart from this, she loves to dance, watch movies, read, and spend time with her family and friends. She would like to thank Sheldon Seevak for creating this competition because it has allowed her to learn a great deal about what it takes to make a difference in the world.
