ReConnected Participant Testimonials

Kathleen Muckenhirn, RH'15

“It is a great experience that you are not going to get any other way. It’s a unique trip with people your own age and with the same heritage, focused on allowing you to grow closer to your history.

The program is specifically built to let you (re)discover your ancestry and discover what it is to be Hungarian. The guides are all amazing, and being around other Hungarian Americans with similar stories was incredible. I had the opportunity to learn a lot about my grandparents and their motives to leave Hungary and move to the U.S., which was really important to me. ” 

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.
