Miss Universe calling for Kira Balinger?

04 Dec 2020 | Priya Bhardwaj

The rising star of ‘Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin’, Kira Balinger has all the makings of a beauty queen. With her radiant beauty, fluency and natural ability to charm people, Kira could definitely be an ideal representative of Philippines at the Miss Universe stage.

Balinger is 20 years of age and has quite a lot of years to prepare for her stint in the future. She had once mentioned her dream of bringing home a crown for her country Philippines which is quite literally a pageantry hub.



At her teleserye’s virtual conference recently, she also talked about it as she said, “Definitely, nandiyan pa rin po sa mga plano ko, pero siyempre, tutok po ako sa acting ngayon. I’m still very happy in the acting scene.”

Balinger is a principal cast member of ‘Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin’ currently. In the hit drama, she portrays Hope, whose blooming romance with Jake is marred by the bitter feud between their respective mothers, Ellice (Iza Calzado) and Marissa (Jodi Sta. Maria).

About being so young, Balinger said that she is going to take a little bit of time to focus and prepare first. “I’m still quite young to be focusing on a beauty pageant, and I have a lot of things in life that I still need to learn before I enter one. But to join, it’s definitely in my plans”, she said.



Balinger is now focused at the next three years as an opportunity to enrich and expose herself, to determine her own advocacy. “I think that’s when I feel I will be ready to join. Siyempre, nakaka-pressure din ang beauty pageants. It’s a big platform where makikita lahat ng advocacies, how you can help, so I really need to be prepared for that type of responsibility.”

To make things even happier for the pageant fanatics, Balinger counts Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray as one of her inspirations in life. They even crossed paths in January which made Balinger almost cry and as early as then, the young actress had a clear vision of following in Gray’s footsteps. She hopes to be like her someday.
