Bon dia,

Since I will be the new coordinator for the Double Degree Program in International and European Tax law, American Specialisation per August 1, I would like to introduce myself briefly.

My name is Pauline Veenendaal, I am 44 years old and married. I have been living on Aruba for a year and a half now and I like Aruba very much! Initially, we came here for my husband’s work. Luckily, I quickly found myself a job at PwC, where I still work during the mornings. I’m very glad I can join the team at the University of Aruba and Maastricht University as per August 1! I intend to be present at the University in the afternoons, where you can find me in the flex room.

I look forward to meeting the students of the DDP and my colleagues at the University of Aruba and Maastricht University and I’m sure we will be able to work well together!
