Millennials get a bad rap. Lazy, narcissistic and entitled are adjectives commonly used to describe this new generation of tech-savvy teenagers. The unprecedented rise of social networks and media outlets has revolutionized the way we live our lives but not without some growing pains. What’s missing is the millennial perspective. Generation-i is a collection of introspective essays and think pieces about growing up in the information age from the perspective of a 21-year old student. For me, generation-i represents the last generation born in the 20th century and one of the most unique time frames to date. Not only is it the most ethnically diverse, but it is also the most connected, thanks to the rise of the Internet, mobile devices, social media and the ability to instantly retrieve information. The “i”, in a more literal sense, represents a generation of young people who are empowered to live the life they envision and the fortitude to follow their dreams without the approval of others. As a whole, generation-i is more influential than any previous era because of its abundance of data and communication channels, profusion of entertainment forms, and a collective push for overall unity. Rather than give a specific age group, this book outlines the tendencies and shared experiences that will be relatable to anyone who associates with generation-i.Biografía del autor:
