DURHAM, N.C. -- A Duke University freshman is speaking out after it was revealed that she is doing pornography to pay for her tuition.

"Lauren," an alias she went by, was recognized by fellow students in one of her films. After he secret was discovered, many students turned to social media -- some to support her, others to criticize her decision.

Tuition at Duke University is more than $60,000 per year and "Lauren" says working in the porn industry has allowed her to pay her way through college.

"Porn has allowed me to set boundaries on what it is that I want to do. Everything that I do, I do willingly, I do consensually and I do because I love doing it," she said.

"Lauren" said she wanted to share her story, despite the fact that she has not told her parents how she is paying for school.
