Twelve-year-old J. Pablo Chavajay met an American psychology researcher in his small Mayan village. Years later, she would become his mentor.
J. Pablo Chavajay was in a psychology class at the University of San Carlos in Guatemala City when the memory first began nagging him. It was the mid-1980s and he was in his first year at university, the first person from his small Mayan village of San Pedro La Laguna in the highlands of Guatemala to study psychology at the university. The day's class focused on child development, and the professor was showing examples of the tests developmental psychologist Jean Piaget gave to children as part of his research. "I said to myself, 'I've seen this before,'" Chavajay said. "It was bothering me."
