After her story went viral, Samantha became even more famous than before. She received incredible support from fans and other lingerie models who felt the same double standards from their friends, family, and colleagues. The model’s profession was a form of love and expression for her, and eventually, others came to terms with it and learned to accept her for all that she stood for.
Samantha became so popular, that she ended up on the front cover of Maxim magazine. This was a major milestone for the young officer and model, and her career really took off from there. She could finally be herself and enjoy the fruits of honesty and hard work.
Not Letting Others Push Her Around
Samantha knew that she was right on this one, and decided to fight for her rights and self-respect. As a police officer, she did an incredible job, and was often honored and appreciated for her hard work and talents. It’s only because her part-time job involved her working with her body that she received such negative treatment from her superiors.
Some of her colleagues began referring to her lingerie modeling career as a form of selling her body, but Samantha chose to look at it as a symbol of female empowerment. She was celebrating her body and felt that it gave her both confidence and pride. The police officer worked hard to get in shape and deserved every bit of glory and money she received from it.
The feud between Samantha and her colleagues only heated up over time, as she became more and more vocal about her opinions. Eventually, the young officer simply told all those that were critical and mocked her, “If people find it offensive, they can close their eyes!” This left her haters speechless, and they didn’t know how to respond.
Eventually, the drama became a viral sensation, as Samantha had 369,000 followers on her Instagram account. Since she never received politeness and courtesy from her colleagues, the model chose to avoid giving it herself. Samantha was very vocal on social media about the treatment she received on the force and used it to send a message about double standards for different genders.
Surviving the Drama
Not only was Samantha deeply relieved when the truth came out and she didn’t have to hide it anymore, but eventually things also began looking better than ever. The young police officer and model finally felt free to be herself and felt like a huge weight had been lifted off her shoulders.
Back at the police station, most of the drama had passed as people began accepting the fact that their female officer was doubling as a lingerie model. Samantha was thrilled. On the one hand, she was still a hard-working police officer who protected the streets of New York with pride, and on the other hand, she was a world-famous lingerie model with a huge waiting list of jobs to choose from. Her hard work was paying off, and Samantha was reaping the reward.
