Kira Balinger takes on adulthood in the spotlight.
Kira Balinger believes in taking chances. Talking to the 19-year-old actress, it’s easy to assume that her candor and confidence stem from her relative youth and seemingly charmed life. But like many people her age, growing up has given Kira her fair share of challenges and disappointments. She’s also had to weather these setbacks under the glare of a spotlight that often burns so bright it threatens to erase all color from life. Thankfully, she seems to be taking it all in stride, displaying a kind of strength and grace that belie her age.
“God guides me,” she says. “I know He won’t give something na hindi ko kaya.”
