Mayra Choc is a Mayan educator trained in Paulo Freire’s methodology of Popular Education. Motivated by her own time as a student Leader, Mayra has worked as a primary school teacher, and is currently working to complete her degree in Social Work, with an emphasis on Sustainable Community Development. Mayra is dedicated to helping other young men and women develop their own leadership skills, providing a seed of peace and dignity for the women and children of historically marginalized communities.

Reading Village has offered me the opportunity to achieve my vision, by focusing on each child and young person’s role in improving and perfecting their own rural communities.
