Middle Class Photo Project

I chose this photo because it represents what being a middle class person is to me. It represents middle class because being able to travel several times a year on paid vacation is a great benefit of my job. I don’t have a husband or kids, and though young professionals are not often thought about as part of the “middle class”, we really are. This picture is of myself in Miami relaxing on vacation.
