Within months, the then 21-year-old became the most sought-after word in places like PornHub,
but her almost immediate fame came at a high cost to her mental health, self-esteem and security.
In a podcast last Tuesday, February 27, with former cyclist Lance Armstrong, Mia Khalifa revealed why she turned away from the pornography industry, a period of her life she describes as her "biggest mistake.
After gaining fame, Khalifa was widely criticized in her native Lebanon for her career in pornography. However, it was when he appeared in a porn film wearing a hijab that the Islamic State took it as an offence.

LadBible reports that, in addition to the threats, their self-esteem problems also had a lot to do with it. Khalifa says she was "young and foolish" when she decided to enter the porn industry.
After leaving pornography, Khalifa began an equally brief career in a sports commentary program on YouTube, which he has left to create his own project to be broadcast on Twitch.
Armstrong and Khalifa agreed that they both know what it feels like to want to remove a stain in the past, because "if you Google Lance Armstrong, all articles start with'suspended cyclist'", while when you look for Khalifa, the first thing you see is'porn actress'.

Khalifa will begin to reinvent herself again, looking for other careers (as a streamer at Twitch, as a writer and perhaps as a cook), and hopefully there will be no more images of her beheaded in ISIS propaganda.
