Duke University student Miriam Weeks, who falsely claimed that she was forced into a porn career in order to pay the high tuition at Duke University, has a message for other students:
If you don’t want to be forced into a life of porn, you had better choose a less expensive school.
In a recent interview, Weeks said, “If I could give advice for any person who was choosing college, I would honestly advise them to go to a cheaper school,” she said.
Weeks claimed in early interviews that she had no way to pay for her college tuition, and she was motivated to began having sex on camera in order to get through college without doing “demeaning” work, such as waiting tables or doing other service work.
Weeks has said she hopes to become a women’s rights attorney after she finishes her porn career.
However, it appears that she has withdrawn from Duke University at this time, according to a report by Fox News. So it’s unclear how connected her porn career is to her educational costs at this point.
The self-described feminist and Women’s Studies major has boasted about having done 25-30 porn videos already, and has made the rounds on talk shows in an apparent attempt to cash in on her 15 minutes of fame, all the while casting herself as a champion of women’s empowerment.
The College Fix revealed recently that Weeks turned down a full scholarship to Vanderbilt University before deciding to attend Duke, casting doubts on her claim that she had no way to pay her tuition other than to turn to performing in porn.
Weeks’s father is an Army medical doctor. He recently returned home from serving the country in Afghanistan to learn that his highly-educated daughter had become a notorious young woman while he was away on deployment.
Here’s a bold prediction: Miriam Weeks will never become a licensed attorney in the United States of America, or in any other nation or galaxy.
