“Most ten year old boys want to become firefighters or superheroes when they grow up. At that age, I already knew that I wanted to be a lawyer. For me, joining VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne meant landing my dream job, while at the same time being able to contribute to the development of Curaçao, the island where I was born and raised. It doesn’t get any better!”
