I am Exceptional: The Millennial Experience

The Millennial Generation is the generation of startups and quarter­life crises, of constant status updates, and identity invention. However, it is also a generation committed to the promise we received when we were young: that our lives would be extraordinary. For most of us, born at the optimistic turn of the century, that greatness has been elusive. We desired to embody fully achieved potential, creativity, and social enterprise, but life often comes up short. I am Exceptional: the Millennial Experience is the culmination of a year’s long work amongst millennials across the country.  It seeks to plumb the depths of this promise, not out of narcissism, but rather out of the keen awareness that the Millennial problem is a timely, poignant expression of the human problem, the need to know who we are and the meaning of life.
