British Law Student Pays for Tuition and Books by Stripping on Webcam
Vanessa Knowles, 25, is a British law student who is paying for her degree by earning money as a stripper. She strips using a webcam for online followers, according to the New York Daily News.
Knowles enrolled in a law school in London and decided to strip part-time to pay for tuition and textbooks.
“Some of my lecturers know what I do and make cheeky jokes but I wanted people to be impressed by more than just my breasts,” Knowles told The Mirror.
Knowles has been able to make $23,500 from stripping, paying off her course fees. She has enough money left to live in a flat in central London and wear designer clothing.
She said her followers have paid $3,300 for her textbooks too.
“My fans have paid for every one of my 100 textbooks and I encourage them to buy me gifts from an Amazon wish list,” Knowles said.
“My lap dancing and webcam work were already teaching me transferable legal skills,” she said. “I was already playing hard ball and negotiating fees with customers, and some guys were saying they felt intimidated by intelligence.”
Knowles also said: “I’ve become an internet personality and fans get upset if I don’t reply to their messages straight away. During the first weeks of university some girls on my course Googled me and tried to discredit my reputation after they discovered my pictures. They looked at my accounts and were laughing at me – but I don’t care, I’m going to graduate with a first and make the most of university, no matter what they say. When I become a full-time lawyer I will probably give up stripping but I’ll still miss getting my kit off.”
