What advantages and disadvantages have you experienced due to your social class background?

One obvious advantage that I had based on my social class background (where I was growing up in my region) was the accessibility of a community that my family could relate to (whose members came from the same country as my parents). Because there were and still are big numbers of my cultural peers in the region, I wasn’t subjected to any scrutiny that some immigrants get (especially if said immigrant(s) made up a minority in a vastly populated non-multiethnic region).

Due to this, I had an easier time being accepted for who I was in school and it wasn’t too difficult for my family to assimilate for work and new lifestyles that were set by our familiars. Ironically, the advantage that I stated above can also be a disadvantage where too many of the same people of similar social classes can potentially compete for benefits. For example, when I applied for college (where colleges are known to accept students based on background for variety in the incoming class), I had competition as I was one of many of my peers.
