The 23-year-old opened up about the abuse in a candid, on-camera interview with The Sun, in which she also discussed her relationship to her body and her decision to start a career as an adult entertainer.
The abuse, she said, came “from outside my family and not from anybody of notable presence – just from scumbag monsters who were looking at my vulnerability and going: ‘That’s the one’”.
“I suffered a lot of grooming,” Mikaela, now 23, told the publication.
“I feel like the abuse I went through wasn’t super intense, but it still had long-lasting impact, because it had me questioning “What is my body? What is it to have a body and exist in a body safely? Also, what is it to be an emotional human being and not have it taken advantage of?”
Speaking about her decision to build a career as an adult entertainer, Mikaela said she hopes to do some erotica for private customers or for the public, and get a dancing licence.
“I got really tired of not being able to capitalise on my body,” she said.
“Frankly, I got really tired of being told to hate my body.
“And I also just got tired of working day to day in a way that wasn’t satisfying my soul.
“I feel like doing this kind of work, I’m able to ‘satisfy’ other people, but that feels good because it’s not in a way that makes me feel violated.”
