Former Florida teaching assistant left her job to pursue twerking full-time, and it looks like it’s paying off.
Jessica Vanessa gets paid to twerk and mention products on her Vine account to her two million followers and she’s making six figures, according to the Daily Mail. “‘What I make in six seconds would take me four months to make as a teaching assistant,” she said.
With the money she’s earned from twerking, Jessica’s been able to purchase a car and pay off her school debt. Who knew twerking could be so lucrative. “It’s quite simple really, the more followers you get, the more advertisers want to pay you for mentioning their products – and I’ve got lots.”
She said she has received a lot of backlash on the internet, so many that she’s had “two breakdowns” and considered getting rid of her social media accounts.
One person who mattered who did not initially agree with her new career was her father, Rafael de Leon. “As a parent I still see her as my little girl, I don’t see her as an adult,” he said. “She could be forty years old and she’ll still be my baby.It just keeps expanding more and more, no matter what she does I’ll just keep supporting her 100 per cent – I love everything she does.”
