While I have read multiple different age and birth year ranges on a millennial, it is technically defined as anyone who was reaching young adulthood around the year 2000. So maybe I am a little farther behind than the actual millennial, because I was in kindergarten in 2000, but I feel like people still apply the term to my generation as well. I have read it as anyone born after 1992. No matter the years, the negative connotations stay the same.
We are known for our safe spaces, participation trophies, selfie sticks, and our cell phones that must be “surgically removed” from our hands. We are better at figuring out technology than any other generation. Most of us can’t spell to save our life, thanks to spell check and auto correct! Urban dictionary killed it with this definition of us!
While there are so many negative descriptions of us, but there are also a few positives that I think better describe some of us. Willing to work for what they want, technology savvy, the best work/life balance of any generation are just a few.
I have such a strong love for writing that has been nurtured by my love of reading that started at a very young age. It was fed from countless elementary teachers who continuously encouraged me to read anything and everything I could get my hands on. My love of writing was encouraged by my 7th grade English teacher. She knew what I was capable of and never expected anything less of me.
