I am not actually the 1%, at least not in the US. Last time I checked, I was just making the 10%.
My dad makes approximately $100,000 /year
With this, my family is able to live a comfortable middle class life.
We could be living a better life on this income, but we happen to live in an area with one of the highest costs of living in the country…. and one of the best public education systems. By being able to afford living in this area, I was given the opportunities to go to magnet schools and truly excel.
Because of this, I was able to win a full-ride scholarship to a private university.
But even if I hadn’t, my parents would have helped me pay to go to a public university and I would still graduate with no debt.
A comfortable, secure childhood, and all the opportunities provided by a good education.
Everyone should have access to these things.
I stand with the 99%.
