Belle Knox is a Duke University student has made a name for herself by becoming a porn star to earn the large sums of money she needs to pay for her very expensive tuition of roughly $45,000 per year. The New York Daily News reported on March 19, 2014 that Knox is planning to return to school despite death threats. Knox says she’ll be returning to classes at Duke on Thursday.

Shortly after Knox returns to Duke she will be back at her part time job at a North Carolina strip club. In regard to the death threats Knox has said, “It’s kind of scary that people would take it that far. But I can’t let that stop me from doing what I want to do.” Knox has shared that she likes performing in porn which allows her to be more creative.

The Huffington Post reports that Knox claims it is not the nature of her work in porn to do things she doesn't want to do. Duke freshman student Knox is also known as the "Duke Porn Star". It is her feeling porn can actually serve as a vehicle for female empowerment. Her harshest and most dangerous critics appear to want her out of the establishment and maybe even out of the world. Yet, it's certainly hard for anybody to say Knox lacks ambition to get ahead in life and it is after all aggressive and ambitious students who often do very well in life.
