ReConnected Participant Testimonials

Alexander Jetta Koves, RH'14

“Through this experience I have strengthened my Hungarian roots and learned about Hungary’s cultural and economic strengths and weaknesses.

Some of the strongest Hungarian cultural identity was found on our trip to a Hungarian town in the neighboring country of Serbia. The adherence to the Hungarian culture and language shown by the Hungarians of Serbia incited my love and compassion for Hungary and its people even outside its border. It has inspired me to be more involved in the Hungarian community in my hometown and to make the culture a permanent and positive addition to my life.”

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.
