Generation Y, otherwise known as the millennial generation, consists of many young adults who are frugal with their money and determined to become successful in life. While their understanding of success is undoubtedly different from that of Generation X, it's difficult to argue how resourceful they are when it comes to technology. In fact, many millennials have learned how to generate revenue from blogging, vlogging and using affiliate marketing on their social media channels. And if a millennial "breaks the internet" with a viral video or post, then they might even earn a networking relationship with sponsors.
But aside from technology, many millennials are also accepting of people from different ethnicities and backgrounds. In fact, the rise of ethnic diversity has caused a change in many social and political causes as well. And we can't talk about millennials without discussing their love of trendy and gourmet foods. Healthy and organic ingredients are a must for this generation, which shows how much they care about their physical (and mental) health. Many of these types of foods, such as charcoal ice cream and rainbow grilled cheese sandwiches, are also heavily shared and marketed on social media platforms. So if you resonate with any of these aspects of Generation Y, then take our trendy quiz now!
