About Me

Christina Balan BIO
What are the odds of hitting a jackpot of talent? If you can be a  model/entrepreneur, like Christina Balan, then one can conclude that you have worked against all odds to become a winner. Realizing a dream was never a walk through the park for Balan, but determination, intelligence, and confidence has enabled her to keep it together. These characteristics along with her intelligence make her one of a kind.

Born in Haiti and raised in the New York City borough of Queens, Balan would often dream of bracing the cover of a magazine like her idols, Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks. As a little girl she would put on her mother’s makeup and high heels, strutting about the living room. Aware of their daughter's talent and love for the camera, Balan's parents encouraged her to pursue a career in fashion & modeling. “I believe in taking action,” says Balan. “Once I had my parents’ blessings, I just said to myself ‘Go for it!’ I had nothing to lose and lots to gain.”

While a student in high school at Bethel Christian Academy, at just the age of 16, Balan put together a portfolio and began auditioning for casting calls. This gave her exposure to many different cultures and environments. It also gave her more motivation than ever, reassuring her that becoming an icon in the fashion industry was her ultimate dream.

Following her graduation from Bethel Christian Academy, Balan wasted no time on turning her dreams to reality. On a mission to produce her own keys to success that could open doors of opportunity, Balan started her own company, Balancy Ent, at just 19 years old. Balan partnered up Balancy Ent with marketing and advertising agencies to provide modeling staff for events, field support for different products, and promotional services.

“I always wanted to be my own boss,” says Balan. “When I realized that I could be my own boss and help others make their dreams come true while getting closer to my own dreams, I decided to start Balancy Ent. We work with models, photographers, makeup artists, designers, stylists, and more. Teaming up with the different agencies and working with these people opened a lot of doors for me. I combined everything I love and made a career out of it.”

During her young career as a businesswoman in the fashion industry, Balan has already managed to work with notables like American film producer & video music director, Brett Ratner, best known for X-Men and the Rush Hour series; and American film director & producer George Tillman, Jr., best known for Soul Food, Notorious, & the Barber Shop series. Balan's future goals include being a contestant on America's Next Top Model and a Victoria's Secret Model. Balan is currently a student at Berkeley College where she is majoring in business.
"The sky is the limit," states Balan. "I will continue to spread my wings and explore greater heights. I will not allow any negativity to get in my way. After all, if I can see it, then I can reach it."
