Some days, you wake up with a smile on your face, and other days, well, sad news like this happens and it makes you wonder wtf is going on in Sufiah Yusof’s life. According to news reports scattered among the English newspapers (and later picked up by the Star today), Sufiah Yusof, who at 13 was admitted to Oxford University to study mathematics, is now a prostitute.

An excerpt from The Daily Telegraph:

Sufiah Yusof was just 13 years old when she was admitted to the prestigious university to study mathematics.

But 10 years on, Miss Yusof now earns £130 an hour working as a prostitute from her flat in Salford, Manchester, according to the News of the World.

The newspaper claims it sent an undercover reporter to the 23-year-old’s home, where Miss Yusof, who allegedly works under the name Shilpa Lee, described the services she reportedly offered.

On her website, she is alleged to have described herself as a “very pretty size 8, 32D bust and 5’5” tall – available for bookings every day from 11am to 8pm.” The website has since been shut down.

Furthermore, according to The Star, “her father was jailed for sexually assaulting two 15-year-old girls as he home-tutored them in Maths,” which may offer some explanation on her current situation. I feel sorry for the girl–but she’s still only 23, and there’s a bright future ahead of her yet.
