Henry developed a passion for European and Hungarian politics after attending an educational summit in Budapest and Berlin. His grandparents were active members of the American-Armenian diaspora which has allowed him to understand the importance of the diaspora community in the United States.
“Through fundraising events, lectures, and the pride in their culture, I saw firsthand how my grandparents worked to ensure the Armenian diaspora remained engaged and connected. As a result, the culture and pride of being Armenian lives on through me, even though I was not physically born there.” – Henry Meyer
