I met with Zachary in Panajachel around lake Atitlán.

"The experience of growing up in a village in the Guatemalan Highlands has shaped my values, world views and life goals. For someone like me with roots outside of the country, that life experience is represented best by Lake Atitlán, its three volcanoes and thirteen villages. Living here from a very young age made me aware of my own privileges and forced me to grapple with things like inequality, injustice, violence and human rights issues."
