Early life[edit]

Neri is the daughter of a professional singer.

In 2008 she performed in the Mindanao Pop Idol singing contest and placed second. Neri used an uploaded video of herself singing on YouTube.

Krizza was a fan of Kapuso Actresses Kris Bernal and Jennica Garcia before joining Protégé.

2011: Protégé[edit]

On August 10, 2011, she auditioned for Aiza Seguerra at SM City, Cagayan de Oro. Seguerra chose Neri, Mark Gregory King and Zibrille Pepito as potential protégés. Neri won a face-off competition by singing "No One" to become Seguerra's official protégé. Neri was the first grand winner of Protégé: The Battle For The Big Break even though she had been twice in the bottom two.

When she was declared as the grand winner of the show, she willingly shared her condo unit with Lovely Embuscado, the protégé of Jaya.
