…You think people have to graduate college to write on Medium?

I have three degrees and work multiple jobs and I’m still poor. I struggle to afford basic expenses. My father was laid off and is in the same boat. Umair isn’t appropriating poverty for his writing, he’s talking about people like my own family.

You’re speaking from a place of privilege if you escaped poverty at age 27.
