The Vermont Cynic

Eribert Volaj is a senior in the Grossman Business School at the University of Vermont. He is currently studying Marketing and Global Business with a minor in English. Eribert started writing for the Vermont Cynic in the spring of 2015, and became Sports Editor in the fall of 2016.

Eribert was born and raised in a small village in Albania, and lived there until the age of 14. During his childhood years, his father bought him a sports newspaper almost every day, which made him very passionate about sports writing.

In 2010, he moved to New York City, where he attended Christopher Columbus High School. During this time, he worked as a tutor and played in the varsity soccer and volleyball teams.

But since he wasn’t good enough to play in either of those teams in college, Eribert decided to get back to his passion of writing, and joined the Vermont Cynic.

When he is not playing, watching, or writing about soccer, Eribert spends his time listening to music, watching television shows, and writing poetry. He hopes to work in the sports industry in the near future, either as a journalist or as a businessman.
