365 docobites: Stranger of the week – Jeney from Budapest

Budapest

Fight it for the others
Jeney was born as a part of an “oppressed Hungarian minority in Romania.”
Following her own personal struggles with discrimination, hate and fear, she now leads the life she does in Budapest working for Amnesty International. Strangers helped her and her family through their struggle, which is why she now feels she must also do the same for others in need of a helping hand.
Today, Jeney is a leader in the Hungary Amnesty International group, which organises the infamous Budapest Pride March each year. This is where she tells her story from, sharing the tumultuous history the Pride March has had – “they threw acid-injected eggs” – and why she is doing her bit to fight for an everyday life she believes should feel “like kindergarten.”

About 365 docobites…

The 365 docobites team, Epiphany & Carl, are travelling across five continents for an entire year to introduce the 365 docobites community to a “stranger a day” via a vlog of short and shorter documentaries. Each docobite will be as unique as the stranger it features, allowing their identity to drive the content. Whether we’re with a stranger for a moment or a day, 365 docobites will capture the essence of that time in their life; humorous or horrific, dramatic or delightful. What do these people look like? What do they think about? What makes them laugh, cry, scream and shout? What is life like for the strangers of the world?
