Prodigy now a prostitute?

I have another post for today but I can't help it when I read this news online. Got to post it right away...

Not long ago, a 13-year old Sufiah Yusoff made it to the Oxford University. Now, she is posting 'her service' for £130 for an hour in the Internet. It is reported that she has turned into a hooker. The paper reported that she had called herself Shilpa Lee on a hookers’ website. She is said to have advertised herself as “a sexy, smart student” who preferred “older gentlemen”.

Troubles started when she ran away from home at 15. Refused to go back to home, saying living with his father is like hell. Placed under social care, and then got married when she turned 19 only to get divorced a year later.

So, now she is a hooker and her father whom she is not fond of, has been sent to jail for molesting two students under his care *sigh. The family is ruined and I am still thinking what went wrong.

My mood is spoilt for the day. May be this is one reason why I should refrain from reading newspapers in the morning.



p/s: more news with disturbing photos here which may offend some people.

i have been fooling myself when i stopped watching TV and stopped reading newspapers, i was selfish in protecting my happiness and doing my best not to ruin my mood. i was wrong. The misery doesn't end if i am ignorant about what is happening around.

This indeed is a tragedy. So are all the stories such unfortunate girls have buried in their tender minds.

It's sad to know these things happen to such promising girls.. I guess it's not easy living life with too many high expectation from everyone.. So sad..

She has ruined her own life. She maybe a Maths Prodigy but where did her self respect and dignity went? How could she be so foolish? It just angers me!
