Members of JEF-Hungary

Patrik Miklós György

International Officer, EU Fridays Editor in Chief

Hello! My name is Patrik György, and I am the International Officer at JEF. I am currently studying political science and law at the University of Zürich. I joined JEF, because it gives me an opportunity to advocate for a more integrated and collaborative European community, by reaching out and informing the general population.

Márton Budai

My name is Márton Budai. I'm studying international relations MA at the Corvinus University of Budapest. I graduated at the same university with European Integration specialization.

Réka Heszterényi

Secretary General

Hey there, my name is Réka Heszterényi. I spent most of my life in Budapest and completed a degree in International Relations. Now I am living the European dream: I finished a Schuman traineeship in Brussels, then moved to Florence, and finally landed a job at the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg. I joined JEF because I believe that young people should have an active role in shaping the future of (a Federal) Europe 🇪🇺🌟

Balázs Sean Brandt


Hi Friends! My name is Balázs Sean Brandt, I am closing the line of introductions as the President of JEF Hungary. I was in high school when I first came across the idea of a federal Europe, and ever since, I am a great fan. I graduated in 2021 from the College of Europe with an MA in EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies, and I am since living a double life in Budapest and Brussels. Since 2020, I and the team are working towards bringing the EU closer to young Hungarians through dialogue, presentations, and panel discussions. And honestly, I am so happy and honored to lead such an enthusiastic and motivated team. If you feel like our vision and message are close to you, feel free to reach out to us on how you could contribute to our campaign 😃🇪🇺
