Love knows no boundaries. And beauty, at its best, is surely out to conquer everything!
A product of Elites Model Management of Mr. Martin Martin, Ms. Christine Balaguer, a deaf-mute model was chosen as one of the official candidates of the prestigious Binibining Pilipinas 2015 beauty pageant to be held soon. She is candidate no. 5!
Against all odds and ridicules, coupled-in by all-out discrimination from others, Christine proved in the end that she’s worthy to be among the official candidates.
Her life story was once featured at the TV talk-show on PTV 4- Personage. And it’s a life that’s full of challenges and “woman-power”.
“I am so happy for her!”, Christine’s manager, Mr. Martin Martin said to a blogger. “I know she can win. If not, surely, she’ll be among the top finalists of the beauty contest. She’s the epitome of a true Filipina beauty. Brave, humble and kind. Despite her physical defect of being deaf-mute, she impressed everyone with her poise, beauty and intellect.”
Christine will have a translator all throughout the beauty contest. And a crippled fashion designer will design all the clothes she’ll wear on the pageant.
More power, Christine. Surely, you’ll get there! Hats-off!
