Meet the first ReConnect Hungary 2019 candidate
We are pleased to introduce Kristina Knechtl (23) from Michigan, who was the first candidate accepted to the 2019 ReConnect Hungary Program.
She is excited for the cultural immersion experience of a lifetime in June. Let's find out who she is:
I have never been to Hungary before, this will be my first time visiting the country. Which is very exhilarating! I can’t wait to experience everything Hungary has to offer.
The part that excites me most about the birthright trip is connecting with the Hungarian people. Seeing how the Hungarians live on a day to day basis and interacting with the locals. I can’t wait to deepen my understanding of Hungarian culture and share it with others when I come back home.
Most of my close relatives moved to America after 1956. I know I have some distant cousins in Hungary but figuring out how to find them and contact them proves to be a challenge. I would love to meet some of my relatives but I don’t know if that will be a possibility for me.
My whole life I felt like we were missing pieces to our Hungarian heritage. The only things passed down through the generations were the food and some family stories. After this trip, I feel like I got to fill in those gaps. I have a better sense of what it means to be Hungarian-American and I feel a stronger connection to my great grandfather.This experience
