It's no secret that journalists on the Dutch Caribbean islands are under immense pressure. Journalists have to deal with information scarcity, potential sources that inherently mistrust journalists, ministers that angrily call newsrooms after reading a critical piece, and constant deadlines which limit the ability to make journalistic productions that are more extensive and go deeper into a topic.

In my 3+ years of working as a (freelance) journalist in Aruba, I experienced all of the above. But I continue to work every day to work on journalistm that can bring impact, work that goes farther than simply the news of the day. To this end, I do research, which involves looking for (legal) documents, analyzing them, comparing them, making FOIA-requests, making calls, finding reliable sources and a variety of other work. I also continually invest in my development, and I follow new courses and MOOCs on a regular basis. These often have a cost attached to them.

With your support, I would be less constrained in capability to make work that goes deeper into the problems that Aruban society is facing. If you want to ensure that I can continue doing more (and better) work, consider supporting me on Ko-fi by clicking the widget on the bottom left corner of the site.
