College Student “Twerks” Her Way Thru College; Makes $180K As Stripper
I'm no fool, I knew strippers were getting a solid amount of money but wait a minute...$180K? A student at the University of Maryland (Go Terps), Maggie, says that she makes $180k a yer stripping and by making that money, she has made enough money to afford to stay in college. Now.... Can you be mad at her hustle? You say an education is the most important thing you could possibly have right?
Maggie is an average college student who attends the University of Maryland, College Park.
She does however have a not-so-average part-time job that helps her pay for college… and then some. She’s a student by day and an exotic dancer by night.
She’s double majoring in Spanish and political science and unlike many of her peers at the University of Maryland, she will graduate debt free. Every other weekend she takes a three-hour train ride to Manhattan to a club where she dances.
There is still a good segment of our society that believes it’s degrading to be a stripper, a reality that is not lost on Maggie.
“It can be,” she said. “There are times that it feels like that.”
But Maggie does take home, she said, about $180,000 a year—far more than the average college expense. And she’s not alone. There are 24 other women at the same club where Maggie dances who say they’re also putting themselves through school. “My parents, when they found out, were totally horrified,” Maggie said.
But Maggie said stripping has afforded her the time to study and she makes more in one night dancing than she does working 40 hours a week waiting tables.
Ironically, I ain't even mad at her!
