A former stripper, raking in up to $50,000 (£37,000) a month on OnlyFans, has told of her heartbreak aft being bullied for making porn online.
Cami Strella, 28, claims she was judged and shamed until she felt the need to quit her undergraduate degree in North Carolina where she was studying traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and spinal cord injuries (SCI).
The OnlyFans star, who started making solo, boy/girl, girl/girl, and even orgy videos during the lockdown, has now told of her anxiety and depression when other students looked down on her.
She told the Daily Star: "[The other students] would feel bad for me and think that I'm headed down a dark path given their strong affiliations with Christianity.
"They'd also say that I don't belong in the medical field or community because of how I make a living and how I paid my tuition, but the truth is, I know a lot of people that work in the medical field that supplement their income as sex workers."
As a result of the mounting ridicule from her peers, Cami chose to leave her course and became depressed and anxious about her future.
However, the 28-year-old managed to turn her life around by creating more content for her OnlyFans subscribers and climbed her way to the top 0.9% of creators.

Cami has since become known for her charitable donations as she claims to give away 10% of her proceeds to organisations that support military veterans.
Now, the former stripper believed she has a better way to help people suffering from PTSD and brain conditions as she is able to provide funding for areas that need it.
She added: "While I was heartbroken at first, I've since moved on and am now able to help more people than I would've ever been able to as a clinician.

"I can raise awareness and funds for causes I care about on a much bigger scale. I'm the happiest I've ever been and I'm not letting anyone or anything bring me down.
"Everything happens for a reason and I still wish the best for everyone regardless of the horrible things said and done to me.
"I don't have a desire to be in the medical field at this time. I still want to eventually pursue a degree in neuroscience and would use it to better position myself in front of the causes and charities I care about as an expert and take the knowledge and apply it to funding research that has real-world applications and impact."
North Carolina University has been contacted for a comment regarding the bullying on campus.
