Gen Z

imgres-1Certainly describing any generation is an overall judgement but there is something to it.  Generation X, Baby Boomers, Millennials, etc.  Each generation makes it mark and each generation has certain characteristics based on what has come before them and the overall state of the world.

Generation Z is people born between the mid-90s and the early 2010’s.  They are socially conscious, are concerned about the future and support gender equality at every level.  Sexual orientation is flexible.  They are extremely into food from what they eat to how it is prepared to where it comes from.  They appear to be pretty independent vs the last generation who lived through the hovering helicopter parents.  Travel comes naturally as the world gets flatter and social media allows you to keep connected to whoever, whenever and wherever they are.  They work hard but are much more in touch with who they are or at least figuring out who they are.  They are also creative because they can be.

Generation Z grew up with a phone in their hand with access to games and the world.  The products that came on the market during their teens let them make anything, be insanely creative and remain independent.  Kids can now make a movie at 14, post it on Kickstarter and get funded.  They can build an app and put it in the Apple store and see what happens.  They are being exposed to a flat world through media and travel.

We are living in interesting times although I guess we always have if you look at what people wrote during their own times which is now history.  I really love the qualities of Generation Z. They seem very well balanced and progressive in their thinking.  Of course they are young but oh how they grow up quickly.
