ReConnected Participant Testimonials

Sarah Carroll, RH'18

“The program helped me not only to come close to my ancestry, but find myself and a path for my future. It opens cultural doors and is a once in a lifetime experience.

This trip is vital to keep running because it allows young people to find a piece of their Hungarian puzzle. This trip is rich in culture and allows people to understand where they came from and hopefully carry on the customs they learned from this trip. Keeping the Hungarian culture is alive is important no matter where you reside.” 

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.
