Program: HIF Spring Intern
Host Institution: The Hungary Initiatives Foundation Internship
Quote: “I got my first insight from HIF during The Young Hungarian Leaders Program last autumn. After the wonderful study sessions, workshops, meetings, and think-tanks with high position U.S. government representatives and Washington DC’s best academics, I saw what a remarkable job HIF is doing for the civil relations between Hungary and the United States. When I had the opportunity to be a part of the team, I took it immediately. I knew how fortunate I was, because working at HIF has given me the experience to be part of such an extraordinary initiative, while working for a foundation helping the Hungarian-American relations.”
