I'm a Female Coal Miner - People Call Me a Beauty Queen When They See My Transformation Out of Work Clothes
January 11, 2023 - A female coal miner has shown she can rock two very different looks, and her followers are loving the transformation.
Jodi is a TikTok user in Australia whose posts are gaining thousands of likes and followers, all transfixed by her insane before-and-after’ style pics.
You won’t find many women in coal mining. This blue-collar industry is traditionally male-dominated.
It’s tough, sometimes dangerous, and very mucky.
But Jodi, who goes by @jodi_maree on the social media platform, is relishing her chosen career path as a coal miner.
“Five years of loving my job as a CHPP (coal handling preparation plant) operator!” she said in one clip, with the song Good Day by Nappy Roots providing suitable background music.
Her platform, which she defines as covering "Miner and Make-up," urges fans to follow her philosophy.
“Do what you love and you’ll love what you do!”
She signs off with several hashtags, #mining #coalminer #womeninmining #bluecollar.
While she's making an impact in her workplace, she's also making one in her post-work/downtime transformation.
Her posts routinely show her at work at the mine, looking dirty, mucky, and smudged in coal dust.
But then she is magically transformed into a beauty queen.
Her skills with cosmetics rival her ability in the workplace.
Comments raved about this young woman, who is paving the way for others like her wanting a foothold in mining.
“You look so beautiful,” was a comment typical of many.
“Similarly: “You’re so adorable.”
Others were in awe of her job in mining.
“Great job,” said one.
Another said: “Respect babe.”
“While one comment said: "You are a good lady – hard working.”
And: “Love your courage.”
You’re an excellent role model was the view of some: “This is what I like – a girl that is not afraid to get her hands dirty.”
Chiming in at the end was even a marriage proposal: “Will you marry me?”
