“I started sex work as a way to gain the independence that was missing in my life. A way to find acknowledgment, appreciation for the things that we as women do.

It has given me respect and emotional protection because it offers me the privilege of financial independence.
I can choose when, where and for how long I want to work.
I meet many different people, with different lives and thoughts. I learn a lot…

I feel no shame. I am proud to be a sex worker.

It’s not just money in this job. I am more aware that I don’t have to be perfect, my way of thinking has changed. Now I don’t worry if I’m not that skinny or have hair somewhere. I don’t break my head.

Sex work has empowered me and helped me be the woman I want to be.
Who knows her worth.”
