About The Expert Christy Peraja spent four years in the banking, finance, and customer service industry. This was the career path that she had to pursue due to her background studies. She learned more than what she expected but always felt that it was not enough. She wanted to become an artist. When Christy Peraja was in Junior High, she drew artwork in the school's lobby as requested by one of the teachers. The Visual Arts Club Adviser, who later became her mentor, saw her work and recruited her. He exposed her to many art contests, where she received awards within those two years. She eventually became the club's president and graduated with pride of having that title. For almost twenty years she hid her artwork and secretly but persistently continued to train herself in drawing, painting and writing. Realizing how much she had improved her skills gave her the courage to achieve her lifetime dream. Despite the disapprovals and criticisms, she continued practicing. She is able to do different works of art like painting, pop art, portraits, cartoons, vector, manga illustrations and so on. She never stopped dreaming of becoming a real artist, that is why she intended to fulfill it now and always believed that it was never too late. One piece of advice from Christy Peraja is, "Don't ever be afraid to chase your dreams because if you truly enjoy it, your dreams will be the one chasing you in the end.
