When I checked this blog this morning, I was a bit surprised. Suddenly I had a spike in visitors’ count. And all hits led to this post: Sufiah Yusof aka Shilpa Lee: Prostitution as Profession
Then I realized, I read yesterday that someone managed to track Sufiah Yusof where she has agreed to do an exclusive interview. No wonder! The interview was shown on Nona yesterday which I didn’t know about and missed. Thank you to the existence of Youtube and the kind soul that recorded the interview and posted it on Youtube, you can watch her interview if you’ve missed it.
Sufiah Yusof’s life story is mostly tragic. For a math genius that spiraled into depression and chose the wrong path in life, then to get all the media attention for it is ridiculous. I don’t think anyone should harass someone’s life just like Britain’s media did so they could get a story. Very selfish thing to do, but then again, since when the media ever have mercy on someone else’s privacy as long as they could get a story to sell?
I’m happy for her current life and I’m surprised that she agreed to do the interview. I don’t think us as the public could ever understand what she’s been going through and all the pressure that surrounds her since she was 13. We didn’t have that kind of life – forced to grow up and live an adult life at such a young age. When I was 13, I was struggling with an awkward life, high school, low self-esteem and acne! We have no right to judge her, bash her or to even give opinion about her life choices. I’m glad she’s no longer into prostitution, and I hope she’s really doing okay, not just pretending.
Just leave her alone, and let her move on with her life. People who are holier-than-thou, who keeps commenting how she’s still not wearing a hijab and all that shit, please, go @#^$ yourself. You have no right to judge people. Nobody likes that, and I’m sure you wouldn’t like it if people starts judging your life either.
Sufiah Yusof, I wish you the best in life. We’re all adults now. Let’s not act like immature teenagers. We all have one or many dark past that we want to forget. She made a mistake by going into prostitution/escort service, she’s learned from her mistake, so just move on.
And I also hope to see she’s reunited with her family, even if only for a few hours, her family especially her mother deserve to see her.
