Rigoberta Menchu-Tum
By: Nancy M.
Tennessee, Grade 11



I am nominating Rigoberta Menchu becuase she has accomplished many things for indigenous people in Guatemala. She has suffered from many things to have her voice heard. She had to leave Guatemala because the people wanted to lynch her. She also won a Nobel Peace prize.
