Lariz Santos will truly empower those who have lost their desire to follow their dreams. Despite being blessed with a kind heart and a mind brimming with creativity, there was a time in his life when he turned his back on his passion for the arts—this is so he can obediently serve as the main provider of his family. After years of suppressing his artistic self in an 8 to 5 job, he finally took a leap of faith and became a struggling freelance artist—a change that resulted to conflicts with his loved ones. Instead of giving up, Santos strived. Soon, his talent began to shine…and they claim that it reached its brightest when he qualified for the final round. Little did they know then that he will be hailed as the grand winner of the Hyundai’s first ever Digital Arts competition.
This is his story.
