Keke Palmer was a bona fide film and television star before she was old enough to take her driver's permit test. The actress charmed critics and audiences alike in "Akeelah and the Bee" (2006) as a young, urban woman who spells her way to the national competition. Palmer's career also spanned music and television, where she earned award recognition for her performance in the television movie, "The Wool Cap" (TNT, 2004). Palmer further elevated to the top ranks of teen superstardom with a lead role on "True Jackson, VP" (Nickelodeon, 2008- ), playing a high school teen who lands a dream job in the fashion industry. With the ability to engage her audience in various projects, while at the same time, maintain a good girl image, Palmer's early success in the industry firmly rooted her career as a multitalented entertainer and positive role model for young girls.
