Eugenia Popa – President (Founder)

Gina moved to Minnesota from Bucharest, Romania, in 1995 with her husband and her son. She has been an educator for over 30 years and currently teaches ESL (English as a Second Language) in St. Paul. She loves traveling, working with children, and spending time with her family and friends. Gina has been part of HORA since its inception in 2009 and believes that what brings Romanians together is the ACASA (at home) feeling that we are all longing for. “I think geography is relative. Romania is in our hearts and in our minds. It’s in our power to bring it here with us. That is HORA’s role, to invite everyone to experience the unique Romanian culture, history, and traditions right here in Minnesota.”
