Part of the feature Next Big Things: Young Achievers Under 25

Few are those who hold onto dreams of becoming an artist. But for Katrina, it was never a question of 'if' but 'when.' Having graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Visual Communication from UP Diliman, Katrina knew she wanted to pursue her passion and worked hard to establish herself. All her hard work soon paid off, however, when a year after graduation, she held her first solo exhibit (check out her masterpieces at <>) -- a major feat for most artists. Katrina admits she has still far to go and much to achieve, "I've learned that for every crucial decision made, sacrifices are always necessary. And whatever the outcome is, always continue believing in yourself."
