Jessica Vanessa was a kindergarten teaching assistant before she was discovered by advertisers for her videos.

The 22-year-old Florida woman quit her job, and began twerking for a living making six figures!

“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.
