Social media sensation Jessica Vanessa is making a living doing the dance move Miley Cyrus made famous. And it is really paying off.
The 22-year-old from Florida quit her job as a teaching assistant to make Internet “twerking” videos full-time.
“What I make in six seconds would take me four months to make as a teaching assistant,” she told Barcroft TV.
With more than two million followers Vine, she posts twerking videos and then advertisers pay her to mention their products.
Jessica says she has a lot of support from her family, her brother is even her cameraman.
She has faced her fair share of criticism though, and says she’s suffered multiple breakdowns over the treatment she has received by people online.
Jessica says that twerking has allowed her to pay off her school debt and buy a new car, and she doesn’t miss working the 9-5.
