Spotlight on Dia Windhoffer, RH'17

What is she up to after returning from the Birthright trip?

Less than a week after returning from her birthright trip in 2017, Dia Windhoffer went to the Hungarian Heritage Day in Livingston Parish, Louisiana, held by her volunteer organization, Árpádhon Hungarian Settlement, the oldest Hungarian community in the U.S. As part of her volunteering assignment, she will start a Facebook page for the Hungarian Settlement Historical Society to give the community a stronger social media presence. She has also been asked to help translate old letters that were written to one of the founders of the settlement and will be displayed in the museum the Historical Society is planning to open soon.

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.

I got a more thorough experience of Hungarian culture than if I would have traveled by myself...
