There ain’t no junk in this girl’s trunk.
Jessica Vanessa is a former assistant kindergarten teacher from Florida. But when she wasn’t teaching at school, she was gyrating her butt in front of a camera and posting it on Vine. The 22-year-old seems to have a natural ability to twerk, and soon her videos were being followed by a massive, drooling audience of two million. Advertisers took notice, and soon offered up big bucks if she could somehow find a way to mention their products in her videos.
That teaching career, naturally, started to look less appealing.
Anywho, here’s what she does now:
Quite the transition from kindergarten classes, amirite?
While she won’t specify exactly how much she earns twerking on Vine, Vanessa says it’s in the six figures and that she already pulled in enough to buy a new car, pay it off in full, and clear all of her student loans.
“What I make in six seconds would take me four months to make as a teaching assistant,” she told Barcroft TV.
But her, er, alternate career path doesn’t come without its fair share of haters.
“People like to define you as a whore for twerking but it’s just a type of dance, that’s it, if people were open-minded they would understand that,” she told the Daily Mail.
Vanessa still has her family’s support at least. Her brother is her camera man, and her dad eventually warmed up to the idea, joking that he would even make a video with her one day.
And that, my friends, would be one for the virtual family photo album.
