Social media sensation Jessica Vanessa is making a living doing the dance move Miley Cyrus made famous. And it is really paying off.

The 22-year-old from Florida quit her job as a teaching assistant to make Internet “twerking” videos full-time. She is now making six figures, according to Barcroft TV.

“What I make in six seconds would take me four months to make as a teaching assistant,” she said.

She says she makes the money by having advertisers pay her to mention products in her videos, according to Cosmopolitan.

Vanessa has more than two million followers on Vine.
