I’m not sure how much of a secret this is but everyone I know is getting family help including me. As long as people are aware of their privilege and not taking it for granted, I see no problem with it. I would not be where I am in my career without financial help from my parents with college and housing help from my grandfather. He let me live rent free for several years in my early twenties as I started my theater career. I am forever grateful for their help because it took a long time for me to support myself in the arts.
