A woman says she’s “so much happier” since quitting her job as a pastor to become a glamour model.
Nikole Mitchell was raised in a religious family and always strove to have a husband and kids – but it wasn’t until later in life that she realised she’d been suppressing a secret.
The mum, from California, USA, faced her fears by coming out as “queer”.
She also decided to leave the Church and pursue a career as a sexy model.
Nikole felt comfortable in front of the camera and started posting saucy snaps on OnlyFans.
She is now earning a fortune from the adult subscription site – but best of all, she pleased she has shrugged off her restrictive past.
The former pastor told Truly: “I was raised in a very conservative, religious environment.
“The message was when you become a wife and mother you’ve reached the pinnacle of womanhood.
“I tried to become that woman for most of my life.
“I decided I want to be a preacher and a pastor. I want to tend to my flock and bring people together.
“The church where I rose up as a pastor was a mega church – it’s a huge community with thousands of people.”
Nikole continued: “When I was a pastor I was still subscribing to belief that I am responsible for how men view me.
“I would spend so much time on my outfit.
“Like don’t wear too tight jeans or I probably shouldn’t wear high heels because that could look provocative or sexy.
“That was just a lifetime of shaming women – body shaming, sex shaming and victim shaming – it was so toxic, it was so controlling, it was so unhealthy.
“But then I had my awakening. I realised my queerness and that I’d kept it closeted. I felt terrifyingly me.”
Nikole found the strength to come out and leave her religious career behind her.
She explained: “There was this pressure to fit the mould and as a queer woman in a very straight, male-dominated church, I was afraid I was too much and I would get in trouble.
“I knew I would likely lose my job and my church.
“But it eventually got to a point where I couldn’t hide it and I decided to come out publicly.”
After quitting her pastor job, Nikole set-up her first sexy photoshoot in 2018.
She recalled: “It was in 2018 that I finally scheduled by first photoshoot – it was something I wanted to do for years and it felt so beautiful, tasteful, artistic and expressive. The more I did, the more I wanted of that."
After getting a taste of life in front of the cameras, Nikole wanted more of it.
She started her own OnlyFans page, which she says has “become a full blown money-making job”.
Nikole explained: “I’ve gone from being a pastor in my church to being a successful adult model.
"I make between $30,000 (around £21,000) to $100,000 (around £72,000) a month.”

Nikole is so pleased she was brave enough to take the leap of faith.
She added: “A few years ago we were broke.
“I was a stay at home mum, I didn’t know my purpose.
“But then, I had my awakening and shifted and I’ve become who I was always meant to be.”
