[dropcap]L[/dropcap]os Angeles, CA–Christina Cooper’s modeling career has allowed her to work with brands such as Reebok, Cristian & Co., Milano, Roberto Cavalli and Victoria Secret Pink. She has been able to walk the red carpet and talk about the news of her many accomplishments at the BET Awards, the ESPY’s and Emmy Awards.

She is of Jamaican and Chinese descent. After model scouts found her, she would end up being signed to MSA Models in Los Angeles, The One Models in Milano, and to ICAN Models in Germany. She recently released a book about her journey at Barnes & Noble titled “Modeling: From LA to Milan.” At only 23-years-old, Cooper is definitely making a name for herself.

With The Christina Cooper Show, she is the youngest cable television talk-show host producer. She has also created a magazine called Who’sNext Mag, which is on shelves and in select stores right now.

Cooper’s modeling career has led to acting roles including her role as ‘Crystal’ in the “Never Heard” movie (soon to hit theaters) where she plays alongside Karrueche & Lil Romeo, and ‘Miko’ on the Emmy nominated show “Dear White People.”

Now Cooper is stepping out to develop her own films. She recently wrote and produced her first short-film “Loyalty,” which premiered in select theaters this May.

Cooper credits rapper T.I with the decision to develop her short-film into a full-feature film entitled “South Central Love.” She will be directing this feature film in the heart of Los Angeles.

“I want to inspire our current and future generations to stop the cycle of gun violence. I have lost a few dear to me due to gun violence, including my ex boyfriend. I want to encourage more love around the world. I want to inspire change within our communities.”

She recently set up an Indiegogo campaign to gain financial backing and support to develop her film. You can donate and find out more about her project here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/south-central-feature-film-love-community/x/19177158

Her career is centered around uplifting young women and helping them focus on more positive paths where they let their creativity lead them to opportunities. One day she plans to create her own foundation to help people in the Los Angeles community and around the world.

“People say they want change in society. But won’t support the young ones (such as Christina Cooper) trying to make a change in our communities. Her ex-boyfriend was shot and killed in a drive by a few weeks ago. Just a day ago, her cousin was shot in a drive by as well. This has happened many times before throughout her adolescent years. This shouldn’t be the new norm. This movie “South Central Love” needs to be made but she needs your help in getting funding. If you’re from L.A and you support your young African-American women trying to make a change, support this movie. If you ever lost someone due to gun violence, support this movie. If you want change in our communities, support this movie. Support! Especially if you’re from L.A. Support your own natives!”
