The young generation was told during their childhood they can be anything they want to be, no matter who they are. This is the idea that lingers throughout millennials mind and gives them the drive to strive for greatness because “There’s not this us-vs.-them thing [anymore]… Maybe that’s why millennials don’t rebel,” says Tavi Gevinson from Steins article.

This why the young generation fights so hard for equality because their upbringing made them accepting towards all people and concerned about human rights.
I believe I have always pursued for what is best for me and I continue to do so. Dedicated is what I like to describe myself as, whether it is in school or at work.
