Law Graduate Quits Her Profession to Earn £60k on OnlyFans

The law graduate who left the legal profession to work on OnlyFans earns £60,000 a year.

In 2018, Alaw Haf, now 24, graduated with a 2:1 degree from Liverpool.

Her initial job experience was in gyms and nightclubs as she struggled to see herself as a lawyer.

Wales Live reports that Alaw began working in retail but was soon threatened with redundancy.

When some of her followers suggested she could make money from her lingerie photos, she posted them to Instagram.

Alaw hopes to build up a portfolio and pursue a career as an underwear model in the future.

Instead, she joined OnlyFans, a subscription-based service that charges followers a monthly fee for viewing her pictures.

After posing for racier photos, she has drawn the line at releasing X-rated content. However, she has been willing to provide “fans” with glamour shots.

Alaw offers pictures, videos, and private messaging services, which help her earn an average of £5,000 per month.

It is painful for her to admit that the career path she has chosen probably means that she has given up any chance of pursuing a professional career.

She acknowledges that trolling is still inadequately policed, and it is an inevitable outcome of her social media exposure.

Additionally, Alaw’s success with OnlyFans has led to TV work along with the obvious financial benefits.

She also anticipates leaving OnlyFans in the next year or two, with one eye on a potential property business venture.

In any case, she is eager to share her journey if it helps people become less judgemental of her current work.

I have many jobs, from working in a gym to a nightclub, but when I started OnlyFans, I had just graduated from university and had no idea what career path to take.

My retail job would be terminated in a couple of months, so I knew I would not face backlash from my employer.

“I did lingerie shoots as well, but I was building my portfolio rather than earning money from them.

Many of my Instagram followers have asked why I’m not uploading the images to OnlyFans and charging for access.

“I put it off for years because I thought people wouldn’t pay to see them, but when I finally created one, to my surprise, people did. As a result, I now share images and videos daily, mostly from photoshoots and behind-the-scenes videos.

Also, I direct message my fans every Friday and Sunday, and I post a mass picture message every Friday and Sunday. Currently, I’m glamor modeling, which is more risqué than lingerie modeling, but I have no plans to do X-rated material.

The income fluctuates entirely and isn’t guaranteed, so it can often jump from month to month. I have learned, however, that the more work I put into it, the more money I earn.

It has been an excellent opportunity to appear on TV shows such as Young Welsh & Bossin’ It, Am Dro (S4C) and so on. I am most grateful for the freedom it has allowed me since I am no longer tied down to a nine-to-five job.”

I’ve enjoyed spending time with my family and friends, watching my goddaughter Lexie grow up, and managing to travel as Covid permits.”

Alaw is not immune to the cruelty that pervades social media platforms in general despite her profession.

As she said: “I used to get upset that so many people were critiquing my appearance. Now I’m used to it.”.

Alaw said, “I’ve grown a thicker skin and learned to rise above it all, but there’s still much to be done to end trolling. We all have our own opinions, but a line is crossed when someone is deliberately nasty to someone else in the comments section.

“Trolls have caused devastating and tragic results in people’s lives time and time again, but they never seem to learn. After posting the ‘be kind’ hashtag, trolls will continue to bully online the next day. Even though some people will comment on this article saying that the consequence of putting myself out there is trolling, it shouldn’t be the case.

The online world of social media would be a much safer and happier place if we all stuck to the classic, “if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything.”

Alaw has the following message for those who tell her to “get a proper job”:

“I would like people to be open-minded about OnlyFans, and digital incomes in general,” she said. Our income will no longer depend on a nine-to-five job in 2022.

“I always have to remind people telling me to get a ‘proper job’ that OnlyFans is a job for me, so I tell them if HMRC counts it as an income, then it is a job! Getting judged for being on the site is normal anyway. It’s always, “She’s the one who does OnlyFans” and “Doesn’t she have OnlyFans?”, so I would prefer it if people didn’t see it as a representation of me and only as a source of income for me.

As a result, it is becoming more accepted now since we saw so many creators join during the lockdown. I do not want it to become so normalized that 18-year-olds finish school and think joining OnlyFans is the easiest option. I can tell you that it is not that easy.

“It has repercussions on my career path in the future, as well. I know I would not be able to have a professional career after this, but I accepted that before signing up.”

Alaw concluded with this statement about her plans: “I know OnlyFans is not going to be a long-term career prospect, I’m not stupid. I’m hoping to go into the property.”.

Yes, I will still be on Only Fans for the foreseeable future. Maybe for another year or two.” The pandemic prevented me from doing so earlier.
