Playa Linda Beach Resort receives a copy of the 'Hoben y Talentoso 2015' award book

ARUBA, December 6, 2015 -- Last Friday, the commission in charge of the Young and Talented (Hoben y Talentoso) project visited Playa Linda Beach Resort, which is the principal sponsor of the "Hoben y Talentoso 2015", a book that profiles the island’s up-and-coming, young professionals.

On this occasion, a member of the committee, Mr. Maurits Malmberg, delivered the latest edition of the book along with a gift expressing gratitude to Playa Linda Beach Resort General Manager, Mr. Peter van Grinsven. This is the second consecutive year that Playa Linda Beach Resort has participated in this great project as the principal sponsor.


Since the first day, when the project and its goals were presented to the management of Playa Linda Beach Resort, they understood the importance of the project in recognizing and supporting the outstanding efforts of young Arubans in different fields such as education, innovation, volunteerism, music, art and sports.

The Hoben y Talentoso Committee is incredibly grateful to Playa Linda Beach Resort, especially its General Manager, Mr. Peter van Grinsven, who appreciates the project’s goals in spotlighting the talents of the younger generation of our community. In the past, Mr. Van Grinsven was an atlete himself, well known in the Dutch Antilles and Aruba.

The book, now in its third edition, was first the result of an initiative undertaken by the Prime Minister of Aruba, Mr. Mike Eman, three years ago.

Other upcomming events related to Hoben & Talentoso 2015 will be broadcast on TeleAruba, channel 13. A spectacular show will honor the 28 “Hoben y Talentoso” role model nominees of this year.
