Spotlight on Csenge Sánta, RH’15
Csenge's dream came true! She is back in Budapest thanks to a scholarship offered by the Balassi Institute.
In 2015, upon returning to Canada from ReConnect Hungary, Csenge continued to volunteer with the Hungarian Cultural Society of Lethbridge, Alberta. Despite her connection to her local community, Csenge longed for more: she hoped to return one day to Hungary to further immerse herself in Hungarian culture, and continue the journey she began on ReConnect Hungary.
In 2017, Csenge got her wish! She received a scholarship and is currently enrolled in the ”Hungarian Language and Cultural Studies” Program at the Balassi Institute. As part of this program, young adults outside of Hungary come to Budapest for 10 months to live and study. They participate in courses about Hungarian language, history, folklore, geography and social issues. The program also prepares students to apply for Hungarian citizenship, a step Csenge plans to take.
Csenge Sánta’s experience on ReConnect Hungary inspired her to delve deeper into her Hungarian culture. Now, Csenge!, she continues on her path of self-discovery. Congratulations
