Please holistically consider your cost of living, family assets etc when selecting your ticket tier. Income isn’t everything, perhaps you earn over 16k, but are a single parent or have vital healthcare costs to cover and need to go for the lower tier? Or perhaps you’re earning 12k but get regular support from family/are due inheritance or something else, meaning that you can afford to pay it forward for someone who may financially struggle much more than you… Thanks for being considerate and a vital part of our ecosystem!
