During times like these it can be very difficult to make a living- especially if you need to pay for ever-increasing college tuitions. While many work a fulltime job to be able to cover school and expenses, most still barely get by, remain in massive debt, and perform poorly academically.
One student from Morgan State University found a way to make the money she needs to cover all her college tuition, plus make enough to put some money away for a rainy day.
One unnamed student, let’s call her Suzy, has become an escort in order to pay her way through college. With flexible work hours and a hefty paycheck, this young student is able to study hard without having to worry about her financial situation.
“It’s not something I’m happy to be doing,” says the Morgan State University architecture major. “But when you’re applying for all of these jobs and no one is calling back, it’s like ‘Well, I have to do what I have to do.’”
Suzy began escorting after first working as an exotic dancer in downtown Baltimore. She first started being approached by men asking for private shows, which eventually led to 3 years of working as an escort and about $1,500/day.
“It’s not that bad for me, because a lot of my clients don’t want to have sex,” Suzy says. “A lot of them just want someone to go out with them, to give them attention. But for those that want other things… its just business. If I’m going to be out here having sex, I might as well do it for money and to help me get to where I want to be.”
While escorting isn’t exactly legal, sometimes you need to do what you need to do. We are sure that Suzy will give up her escorting lifestyle as soon as she graduates and finds herself a job in her area of expertise. It’s impressive what some people are willing to do for success. Suzy’s story is oddly motivational.
