C.J. Kirkham to be on Make Me a Super Model

IMTA alum C.J. Kirkham recently flew to New York City to film her debut for the reality show Make Me A Supermodel. C.J. was selected to be a part of the second season of the Bravo TV series, which will air beginning January 10, 2009! She will be one of 22 contestants who will live together while their professional modeling potential is challenged. First season contestants faced challenges such as modeling summer clothes in frigid weather in Times Square and modeling suits and dresses while being suspended from the ceiling on harnesses. The show is hosted by models Tyson Beckford and Niki Taylor. The winner will take home $100,000, get a modeling contract and a photo spread in a leading fashion magazine.
C.J. competed at IMTA in New York City in 2008. She did really well and received 58 callbacks from modeling agents from all over the world. At IMTA she won awards in Swimwear, Runway, Jeans and Fashion Print. Since IMTA she signed with Revolution Management Inc., a worldwide management company for models. It was at IMTA that she was pursued by the producers of Make Me A Supermodel, and she was cast for the show in August. She also did some photo shoots over the summer for a chocolate commercial that will air in Turkey. C.J. told the Oakland Tribune "I believe I can do this, I have a good support system and am really looking forward to what will happen (in New York). I don't give up and I have a competitive nature, I know what I want."

Congratulations C.J. we cannot wait to see you on Make Me A Super Model!
