My generation, generation Z is better at being savvier than other generations. Each generation had a style that came along with their era which made them different from each other. Generation Z is more diverse and unique. We allow for improvement and growth in society. We are always looking for more.

Generation Z breathes in a world of nonstop technology advances. It seems like each day or week new software or devices come out to the public. In some cases we are the ones that create it or help create it. That could be a phone, software, apps, a computer, etc. We’ll have to quickly adapt to it just to stay efficient and not fall behind. Which brings me to my next point, my generation processes information faster than other generations. We are living and still growing up in this fast life. We learn how to do things sometimes with trial and error or use prior knowledge to figure something out. With all of the technology we can multi-task easier since this is the normal.

We are more resourceful in all aspects of life. We take what is given to us and use it. The phrase “When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade” is applied to this generation due to the savviness. I would even go as far as saying we’ll make a lemonade stand too. Beside the technology a lot of my peers are taking the entrepreneurial route. They create from the imagination. The technology that they create isn’t always a phone or software but something that makes people of all generations’ lives easier. This could be as simple as finding a new way to protect your clothes. Dreaming and being innovative is what drives us. We want to see each other succeed. We create new ways and ideas to do things.

We are more social, global, and educated. We have social media and can quickly spread information. This generation is absolutely more connected to people around the world than previous generations. We connect with social media like Twitter, Snapchat, or video outlets. I think this permits us to become more aware and learn about cultures different than our own. With this new knowledge we become one and united. Our main focus would be creating our own lives. Creativity is key in this lifestyle. We can invent because we have the sense of being unique. Each person has their own spin or style of life.  

Each generation was different due to the time eras but no generation could be savvier than us. We are diverse, creative, global, educated and social. All of these qualities and traits makes up this generation and allows us to do what other generations couldn’t do.
