Christina De Witte aka Chrostin has gained some serious street-credibility as the weekly cartoonist of Flair, but mostly because she's a big hustler and one of the most inspiring women I know. She recently partnered up with HP for her own event #printmechrostin at Firma in Vilvoorde.
The concept was basically a split between a Chrostin expo, a chance to meet new people, and to give young (wo)men the chance of speeddating so-called powerladies (ladybosses, bossbabes, girlbosses if you will) to ask advice about topics such as starting your own business or creativity. Guess what... I was invited to be one of the powerladies! I was really honoured and excited, and flabbergasted by how everyone was so interested in my answers to their questions.
Every powerlady had her own little fancy corner to welcome the guests and even a Chrostified portrait. The other powerladies: Jessica De Block (Antwerp Avenue), Amy Vandeputte (Fastforwardamy), Ilona Lodewijckx (Fille Folle), Yasmine Schillebeeckx (freelance journalist) and Crystal Die (make-up artist). Such a blessing to meet these inspiring women.
Thanks for inviting me Christina!
