    Jen Hobbs – Model and Actress

    By Evelyn Bonilla

    Breaking into the modeling industry is no easy feat, with agencies scampering to find the perfect model with that special uniqueness; most young girls aspiring to become models tend to count themselves out from the challenge.
    But who stated that you need to be at least 5’8″ tall or taller (especially for runway) or that your body weight and proportions need to flatter your height. There are all types of models in the business that are inclusive of fashion, fitness, bikini, fine-art, and body-part models. So to typecast yourself, and not give yourself the opportunity, is to give up on the modeling dream.

    So, giving up is not an option, just ask New Jersey (Hudson County) model Jen Hobbs, a beautiful, petite brunette. Hobbs has been a successful commercial model for the past few years. She has done all types of modeling from catalogue, brochures to body-part modeling. She is especially well-known as the Ped-Egg model, a product that helps feet reveal their smooth healthy skin.
