A shampoo company can claim that 9 out of 10 people prefer their products-does that mean 6+ billion people prefer Pantene? of course not.
Are you hating me because I'm beautiful?
We are a product of the generations that came before us. Millennials came of age during a period of severe economic downturn and political uncertainty. We watched our parents struggle and lived with the strain of current events. We have lived through more tragedies and natural disasters in our 15 to 30 years of existence than many have experienced in a lifetime. Millennials are constantly being referred to as “lazy” and “entitled,” but we are working against factors that our predecessors never had to face. We are coming of age and inheriting the economic and political mess created by those that came before us.
Yet, in the face of these difficulties, we remain optimistic about our futures and the worthiness of humanity. We are connecting with each other, getting involved in our communities, and pursuing higher education in higher numbers than ever before. Millennials are quickly becoming the most outspoken and involved generation, and while that might scare older generations, we have a voice and we are going to use it.
