Such a simple word that is endlessly dissected and discussed ad nauseam. Though there is no single agreed-upon definition, the term ‘millennial’ generally refers to today’s mid-teens to early-30s adults. Most of the time, it has been used in a derogatory way, a blanket term for an entire demographic that society has judged to be politically-apathetic, technology-addled narcissists who are social-media obsessed, emoji-loving, entitled individuals living in a state of perpetual adolescence.
Much of the stigma comes from the fact that the millennials are the generation whose boundaries have been blurred by the proliferation of technology, giving them a wider perspective of how they move about in the world and allowing them to bridge connections that were previously impossible to forge. Such unprecedented exposure to knowledge, cultures and experiences have brought forth a generation that is defined by diversity and social tolerance, a spirit of adventure tempered by awareness, of boundless energy and enthusiasm to experience everything the world has to offer.
