“Why think about that when all the golden land’s ahead of
you and all kinds of unforeseen events wait lurking
to surprise you and make you glad you’re alive to see?”
Remzi Cej is no stranger to the road. Born in Kosovo, he's spent the past 10 years in Newfoundland and Labrador. And now he's settling in to his first year as a Rhodes scholar in Oxford, England.
As the 100th nominee for the Rhodes Scholarship in Newfoundland, this 2008 Memorial graduate is building on his joint honours degree in French and German. Fluent in seven languages, he's more than ready to take on the challenges of his Oxford arts degree — with a focus on international humanitarian law. His dedication to international causes comes from his own life experience. His family relocated to St. John's to get out of war-ravaged Kosovo. Not only has Remzi hit the road in pursuit of academics, but as a multi-award winning volunteer with numerous international organizations, he's taking his cause along with him.
