ReConnected Participant Testimonials

Michelle Geosits, RH'15

"It was absolutely unreal visiting my family in Szentpéterfa and seeing the source of my heritage and being welcomed with open arms.

The trip gave me an incredible new perspective of cultural identity and how enriching it can be in one’s life. It has also provided me with a more accurate, new world view of Hungary as opposed to the old world view shared by my relatives. The best part of the journey is the connections you make with other young people who are of Hungarian descent. It is awesome to be able to relate to people who grew up in North American but who identify, at least in some capacity, as Hungarians. I will forever be grateful for the experiences I’ve had here, and feel renewed by a new sense of belonging to both the small and specific community of ReConnect Hungary and the greater/broader community of Hungarians living around the world. This has truly been the trip of a lifetime. "
