Alumni Spotlight: Fridon Lala

June 23, 2020

CEU alumnus Fridon Lala (SPP ’19, Kosovo) doesn’t waste time. After graduating from CEU, last June, he returned to his native Kosovo, where just months later he was elected Deputy Minister of Regional Development. 

No sooner had Fridon taken office than a one-two punch of political uncertainty and the Covid-19 pandemic struck. It’s made for some challenging days. However, his time at CEU – including his Student Union presidency during the LexCEU crisis – prepared him well. 

“Somehow, I think these things follow me,” he said.
