By Michelle Shea on 04/28/2015

Self-centered. Too technology focused. Dreamers. We know it all. We need constant affirmation. These are some of the negative characteristics and traits used to explain my generation - the Millennial generation (those born from 1982-2004).  The Millennial generation is no different than the Boomer’s, X’ers or Y’ers before us; stereotyped, characterized, classified, and generalized by those that came before them.
