ReConnected Participant Testimonials

Joanna Birkner, RH'13

"ReConnect is a unique program in that it allows disconnected Hungarian youths to find that lost part of themselves. It is essentially a crash course in being Hungarian….

You can be full, half, a quarter, or a sixteenth – it doesn't matter how much Hungarian is in your blood. It's how Hungarian you feel. After this trip I feel like a very proud Hungarian."

Lucy Kosty, RH'21

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.
