In this week’s blog of WHO is Rising? You may have heard of her name, seen her at runways and you noticed her in TV series, who is SHE? Christina Cooper, half Jamaican and half Chinese was born and raised in LA, California. With her exotic and eccentric looks, it’s no wonder she was scouted to be a model which started her full time modelling career. She is currently signed to MSA Models in LA, The One models in Milano and ICAN Models in Germany.
Over the years, she has worked with big names such as Vogue, Reebok Classics, Roberto Cavalli, Victoria Secret Pink, Cesar Galindo, Elléments Magazine, Ebony Magazine, Cristian & Co. Milano and so many more international publications and brands.
Recently she attended 2017 Espy Award (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award) Red Carpet which was held at Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles with star athletes like Kevin Durant, Michael Phelps, Simone Biles and many more athletes attending this special event, hosted by two-time Super Bowl champion Peyton Manning.
Christina was seen wearing a jacket by designer Chanel Mishon from her new collection "Mi'shon Furtado", dress by Moschino, heels by Prada and Clutch by Honey K. Amazing, stylish and stunning look for a spectacular red carpet event!
Now at 23, she also got into acting, leading her into a few acting roles such as “Chloe” in Lipsticks the series, “Miko” in “Dear White People” TV series and as “Camper Crystal” in the new movie called “Never Heard” (hitting theaters in October). Recently, she was selected as the leading role of “Korryn” for the new TV Pilot “Fourth Down” (still filming). Do look out for it!
Despite her busy work schedule, she continues to give support to young women and girls, giving them positive opportunities to look forward to in life and it is also her dream to establish a foundation in helping people in LA and around the world!
