The jury’s still out on whether or not millennials possess a false sense of entitlement (I maintain that many do), but I’d love to begin to dispel the notion that this generation is roughly comprised of lazy beings.
We are far from indifferent, and I think I first came to this realization back in college. I was heavily involved in my sorority back then. It was a group of more than 100 active members each year, and I remember, even as a junior in college, being so in awe of all the things these young women accomplished on a daily basis. They would run from classes to internships to part-time jobs to sorority events to their student professional organizations. I remember looking at some of these girls and just wondering, “When the hell does she sleep?” Seeing my peers work so hard to secure solid employment after graduation motivated me to do the same, regardless of how rotten the economy was in 2010.
