Jody Palmer Model on Maxim Hometown Hotties

Jody PalmerJody Palmer

Maxim magazine hosts the Hometown Hotties contest yearly. The most beautiful women from all over the US gather their most flattering glamour photos and submit them to Maxim Online along with a short biography. The editors at Maxim choose the top 1,000 entries to post on their website and Maxim Model Jody Palmer was one of them.

Fans spend hours browsing the huge collection of photos and bios of the US's most beautiful women, yet are only allowed to vote for one hottie. After round one of the contest ends, the votes are tallied and the top 100 hometown hotties with the highest number of votes are announced. Each of the 100 hotties then submit a homemade video best expressing why they deserve to win the contest. Maxim edits each new video and adds it to each girl's profile. Then round two of the voting begins to narrow down the list of girls to the top 10 most beautiful women in the contest.

2009 Susan G Komen Pink Pledge Pals

The Enemy

According to Wikipedia, breast cancer is a cancer that starts in the cells of the breast in women and men. Worldwide, breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer after lung cancer (10.4% of all cancer incidence, both sexes counted) and the fifth most common cause of cancer death. In 2005, breast cancer caused 502,000 deaths worldwide (7% of cancer deaths; almost 1% of all deaths). According to the United Nations , more than 500,000 people worldwide die from breast cancer every year, and breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women worldwide.

Breast cancer is about 100 times as frequent among women as among men, but survival rates are equal in both sexes.

The Allies

As the cases of breast cancer worldwide is rapidly increasing, various organizations were founded to help stop the disease. And among these affiliations Susan G. Komen for the Cure is one of the most known organization worldwide. Susan G. Komen for the Cure, formerly known as The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, often referred to as simply Komen, is an organization supporting breast cancer research. Since its inception in 1982, Komen has raised over $1 billion for research, education and health services, making it the largest breast cancer charity in the world. Komen has more than 75,000 volunteers nationwide—122 affiliates in the United States (47 of 50 states) and 3 in other countries. Susan G. Komen for the Cure received Charity Navigator's (an independent, non-profit organization that evaluates American charities) highest rating, four stars.

Who is Susan G. Komen?

Susan Goodman Komen was a woman from Peoria Illinois, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33 and died three years later, in 1980. Komen's younger sister, Nancy Goodman Brinker, feeling that Susan's outcome might have been better if patients knew more about cancer and its treatment, and remembering a promise to her sister that she would find a way to speed up breast cancer research, founded the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in Komen's memory in 1982.
In 2007, the 25th anniversary of the organization, it changed its name to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, created a new logo, and adopted the explicit mission "to end breast cancer forever".

The Warriors

To support the continued research and awareness programs on breast cancer the organization conducts various fund raising events such as the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The Race for the Cure is a series of 5K runs and fitness walks that raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and memorializes those who have died from the disease.

Each race is a five kilometer run/walk (5k) for people of all ages and fitness levels. All courses are certified by USA Track and Field (USATF), the national governing body for track and field, long-distance running, race walking and cross-country events.

Funds raised by the events help to support community outreach programs in 18,000 communities. The money supports local community breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment projects as well as the Komen Award and Research Grant Program.

Since its origination by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure nonprofit in 1983, the annual event has grown from one local race in Dallas, Texas with 800 participants to nearly 120 races, extending beyond the U.S. to include locales in Germany, Italy and Puerto Rico.

The 2008 Pledge Program raised over $2.4 million in pledges with total net race revenues reaching over $3.8 million! Of course the fund raiser wouldn’t be a success if not for the support of those who committed to help find the cure to stop the disease. Maxim Model Jody Palmer was among the many warriors that participated in the 2008 Race for the Cure and was included in the organization’s Pink Pledge Pals for her contribution. What an incredible accomplishment, especially considering that just a few years ago, the pledge total was only $175,000 for the 2002 Race. We applaud you as these critical funds will support the promise of the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.

Jody Palmer : Walk For a Cause

Jody Palmer

Jody Palmer recently participated in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation(JDRF) annual Walk to Cure Diabetes in Houston. JDRF is the leader in research leading to a cure for type 1 diabetes in the world. It sets the global agenda for diabetes research, and is the largest charitable funder and advocate of diabetes science worldwide.

The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. Until a cure is found, people with type 1 diabetes have to test their blood sugar and give themselves insulin injections multiple times or use a pump - each day, every day of their lives. And even with that intensive care, insulin is not a cure for diabetes, nor does it prevent its eventual and devastating complications, which may include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke, and amputation. Since its founding in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 diabetes, JDRF has awarded more than $1.3 billion to diabetes research, including more than $156 million in FY2008. In FY2008, the Foundation funded more than 1,000 centers, grants in laboratories, hospitals, and industry, and fellowships in 22 countries. The annual Walk to Cure Diabetes is a fundraising event held by the foundation to raise the awareness on type 1 Diabetes and to raise funds for laboratory and research.

Jody Palmer’s participation at the annual walk was a bit personal. As a token of appreciation for her participation, Maxim Model Jody Palmer was given an award at the 2008 Houston Walk to Cure Diabetes Awards Reception. Thanks to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and to people like Jody Palmer who continue searching for a cure and putting hope to the lives of those with diabetes.

Jody Palmer Tips on Becoming a Model

Basic Tips

The most important part of becoming a model is to make a good start which involves making the right choices about your personal presentation. Read below to determine the category most suitable for you. The following information is organized to give a directional approach to your efforts to achieve your goals.

Basic Requirements-Fashion Model

Jody Palmer

To start with, if want to be a fashion or runway model you should be tall, slim and exceptionally attractive. It gives you additional advantage if you have patience, aptitude, communication skills, confidence and business skills. The age range is usually 14-21 give or take a year. Fashion industry criteria for best models are 5'8" to 6' size 0-4 with 32-35" bust, 22-25" waist and 33-36" hips. Always remember, this industry re quires your perfect figure to present their creations. Your beautiful face is an additional advantage but nobody is looking for classical beauties. If you do not meet this criteria, don't threat. There are many other modeling jobs you can qualify for.

Jody Palmer has almost all of the basic qualifications in this profession. She is exceptionally attractive, tall, and has a great body. Aside from her physical features, she also has the character of a model. She has good communication and business skills, confidence, and she is smart yet humble that makes her attractive inside and out.

Basic Requirements-Print Model

Jody Palmer

To be a print model for catalogs, product ads, store advertisement, clothing ads, etc., the criteria is not as strict. Many companies are looking for "real people" types of all looks and sizes to advertise their products and services. For clothing ads and catalogs 5 '6" or over is preferred, but with a "catalog model" look as opposed to a "high fashion" look. Take a look in your typical department store catalog or weekend advertising supplements, such as Sears, JC Penny's, Kmart, Kohl's, Wal-Mart, Target, etc., to familiarize yourself more.

Basic Requirements-TV commercial/Video/TV Series/Film Actor

Jody Palmer

Now here is where you will be judged more on your personality than your looks. All ages and heights/sizes are used. We all have seen our favorite commercials and sitcoms and wondered how the actors got the part. Maybe it was because they had the right look or talent. It may have been being in the right place at the right time. Or maybe it was because they got up the nerve to go on an audition and the director said " Hey, I like that guy". What will it be for you? Did you know that most (if not all) of first time actors have no lines? One things for sure,it's not going to happen by itself. You need to put in the work, a lot of work , and with a little luck maybe, just maybe, you could be next!

Have faith In Yourself

The first step to enter this tough world is to have faith in yourself. Don't be too self conscience about your looks but also do not let your head grow too big. Some may believe you are the most attractive person on this planet but let us remind you that we have dozens of Miss World/Miss Universe/Miss America's who have disappeared without a trace from limelight despite having everything this profession demands.

If we talk about the sense of beauty, even the infamous Cindy Crawford was advised to get her billion dollar mole surgically removed as some prominent industry people did not find that attractive enough. Always remember, the basic step to become exceptional is to believe yourself that you are exceptional. Do not consider this profession as a hobby, if you do, you are going to crash land as part time model only, just one of the crowd. This career should be your passion, your life. Develop that killer instinct of Do or Die. You have limited time as your golden youth is not going to last forever. You have innocent charming smile, most expressive eye s but now start that roaring fire in your heart. Take for example model Jody Palmer, who at first dreamt of something big for herself. Despite the tough and discouraging competition in the fashion and modeling industry, she didn't lose faith but instead worked hard for her to be known as model. As result, she was highlighted in various modeling and commercial stints including Maxim Magazine's search for the Hometown Hotties on 2007. And despite her popularity, Jody Palmer was still humble and down to earth.
