When Kristina was 5, she wanted to be a doctor one day! Her favourite game was to inject potatoes, apples or even meat (yuk!) using real needles. This passion, however was later forgotten and Kristina tried her skills as an actor (puppeteer), dancer, artist, designer, musician, poet, swimmer, photographer and more... And then, one day, her eyes opened for the world of technology. It was not easy to commit. It took over 6 years, a degree in Business and a love story to understand it was meant to be. Nowadays, Kristina is an ambassador of open innovation and open source and she works hard on getting her MSc in Managing Information Systems and becoming the second most famous woman in IT (she can’t be as good as Marissa Mayer ♥ ...can she?!).
