I’m rich because I’m from here

Madi,
Scottsdale, AZ

Actually, this is the opposite of what is true, but what everyone assumes. I’m from Scottsdale, Arizona where there are many extremely wealthy neighborhoods and fancy resorts. It is also a predominantly white city, which my family is as well. Growing up my parents really struggled with making money after the market crash. Now it’s not something that upsets me as much because I know there are much worse issues to have, but it’s the most common thing people assume based off how I look and where I live.
