Lyza Pajo, an OFW from GCC tried a different path pertaining to her talents and found more than what she hoped for. Make way for an international model, singer and actress.
Born and raised in Manila, she is of mix parentage. Her Filipino father was a gifted journalist while her mother was from a Spanish clan. Musically inclined at an early age, Lyza was known as the Diva Sensation, popular singer, events host and motivational speaker in Kuwait.
After series of solo concerts, events, singing and song writing contests, Lyza proved that the Filipino is a world class winner. She enjoyed these accomplishments through her Christian journey with the help of her daily experiences in life. She became triumphant in the following;
2013 Global Pinoy Grand Champion Kuwait
2014 ASOP Song writing Contest April 2014
2015 International Concorsi World Festival, Second Place held in Milan, Italy
In the last quarter of 2015, Lyza decided to leave the corporate world and pursue her passion in the Arts. Her initial move to UAE caused her 30 plus rejections from all the job applications she hurdled. She was actually qualified for significant company positions but was rejected due to her salary demand. She felt that she deserved more, taking into consideration her more than 9 years of work experience in this particular field. On the side, she was a freelance singer at lounges, hotels and events.
Slightly downhearted, Lyza recalled all the product endorsements she made before and that gave her the determination to prepare herself physically, psychologically and emotionally to venture into a different world – modelling.
For more than 3 months with a minimum of 2 hours daily work out, proper diet, Lyza was able to achieve her curvy vital statistics of 33 – 23 – 33. Modelling offers kept pouring in until finally, she has decided to sign four (4) open contracts with different modelling agencies. From the UAE, she has modeled for a well – known brand of make – up, jewelry, hair treatment / hair color products and fashion shows.
This lady with brown, expressive eyes and flawless complexion will star in her first Bollywood film which shooting starts towards the end of May until June 2016. Listed on her schedule as well is the fact that she will represent the Philippines in the upcoming Miss Asia 2016 Pageant.
By August 2016, she has schedule to venture into Europe for a series of modelling. At this point, Lyza is grateful for all the rejections she received because these became her point of realization that she is not forever an office girl but can definitely excel in the art of singing, acting and fashion modelling.
She says, “Thank you for the 30 plus rejections because I received more and more open doors for the next chapter of my life”
Lyza Pajo is the composer of To you Alone, Kabayan, How could I. She will release her international single CD album by end of 2016.
