"It's my big dream to be the first deaf candidate to win Bb. Pilipinas !
Being born deaf is not the end of the world. Its a challenge but also an opportunity. An opportunity to be able to set a positive example for others that despite being deaf they can still achieve their dreams and contribute to society in a meaningful manner. And be successful !
Life as a deaf can be hard sometimes but all hardship can be overcome by working hard, never giving up and always believing in yourself.
Being deaf is not an excuse for giving up in life or making mistakes in life.
I want to inspire other handicapped people and encourage them to take life in their own hands and always move forward no matter what.
IM VERY SORRY ABOUT THE BPCI MAKE ME RESIGN SO IM VERY DEPRESS  EVEN I PRAY TO THE GOD!" Balaguer posted on her Facebook page after the speculation that she was disqualified. 

Miss Universe Canada 2014 finalist, Shayla Sabbagh

It has always been her dream to be the first deaf and mute Bb. Pilipinas winner but her dream of becoming one will no longer be a reality since she was asked to resign by the org., as rumored littery scatter not unless she will still join and qualify to be a candidate the coming years. Balaguer was chosen as one of the 34 official candidates of Binibining Pilipinas Charity Inc., during the final call back last January 10, 2015. She already attended some of the pre-pageant events but just the past days, it was announced that she will be replaced by Faith Santos as Binibini 5 and that she's no longer competing for any of the titles.
 Given the chance to wear the Philippine sash internationally is no longer new in the world of pageantry to a deaf candidate. The power house country, Venezuela sent Vanessa Peretti in the Miss International 2007 pageant in Tokyo, Japan and she's not the only deaf candidate that time, Peretti competed against another deaf candidate, Sophie Vouzelaud of France. Venezuela then managed to enter the Top 10. 

Miss Universe Canada 2014 also had their first deaf finalist in the person of Shayla Sabbagh. Not only she is the first deaf contestant, she also deals with epilepsy and has had more than 15,000 seizure to date.

Did she resign for 'PERSONAL REASONS'

After earning fans which criticized BPCI, Christine posted on her Facebook page that BPCI treated her fair.

Unedited post 
, I resigned due to personal reasons which I would not like to divulge at this time andI hope you will all respect that. I would like to thank all my friends and all the people who have been giving me words of encouragement and support, thank you! But I would also like to request everyone to stop bashing BPCI as they have been fair to me. I have other plans in my life and my journey does not end here. Thank you to all."

It has always been my dream to participate in Bb. Pilipinas, so I felt lucky and happy when I was chosen as a candidate of this year's pageant. However, I can no longer continue as a candidate for personal reasons, but certainly, NOT because I am deaf, contrary to the speculations in the media. I would like to thank BPCI for the opportunity and I wish my friends who are competing the best of luck. I'm praying for you! I would also like to thank all the people who have been giving me help and support. I hope you pray for my success in the other fields that I will pursue. Thank you to all."
