Germaine Durand is the CEO of Divi Divi Air N.V. that flies out of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao. Growing up she always wanted to be a pilot even though women were not encouraged to undertake that occupation. She followed her father’s advice to get something to fall back on when she graduated with a Business Degree. Still, she yearned to be a pilot, and she persevered to become one. Through hard work and dedication, she became the first woman to own and operate an Airline in the Caribbean.
