Urban dictionary defines a Millennial as: A term used by insecure idiots to dismiss somebody aged 10-35. (TRUE)
But, we’ve never really had a definite answer to the question... AM I A MILLENNIAL?!
Here’s your answer! According to Pew Research Center, millennials are now officially defined as the generation born ! So that means if you're turning anywhere from 22 to 37 this year, grab your avocado toast…You’re part of the club!
Generation X is classified as anyone born between 1965 -1980 and anyone born in 1997 and onward will be part of a new generation (Generation Z).
There are a few major global events that have helped shape millennials, starting with 9/11 in 2001. Around this time Millennials were between the ages of 5 and 20, and old enough to understand the significance of the event. Also, the election of Barack Obama, the invention of the iPhone, launch of Facebook and rise of social media, which developed with millennials but the younger generation, has never lived without. Pew Research Center also points out; Millennials are the most diverse defined generation.
