allison's message
"My Hungarian heritage had long been a source of pride and an integral piece of who I was as a young American who, like so many others, comes from a diverse and eclectic family background. I felt my heritage when I looked at the pictures of my immigrant ancestors, heard the foreign words my relatives would mutter, and saw pictures of the rural place from where the Patakis originally came." (By our Ambassador, Allison Pataki)
