For Kristel, the title ICT Woman of the Year comes with firm promises. She wants to be a real role model, a figurehead, an ambassador for girls and women in IT. "I want to show how beautiful IT is and that the opportunities are immense. You can go from having no money for studies to developer and from developer to analyst and from analyst to project manager, sales, your own team, recruiting, growing, going global. I want to inspire with my story. I also want to work proactively with schools, at different levels: elementary school secondary, college and university. I want to convince girls of different ages that IT, and by extension STEM, is nothing to be afraid of, but can mean something positive in their lives," Kristel concludes.
