Forgive me if I sound age-ist, but I get excited about the Millennial generation more than my own. Maybe it's because my daughter is a millennial, maybe because I am an optimist and I like to be encouraged by the positive things that young people are doing to make the world a better place. But, I am going to start posting people I admire for their creativity and courage and maybe you'll see a pattern in my selection of subjects.
I first came across Zen Pencils (Gavin Aung Than) because he had done a comic for an educational statement or two. It may have been the Taylor Mali one on What Teachers Make, or the Sir Ken Robinson one. But I am now on his mailing list, bought his first book, and just loving this guy's work, combining comic books and inspiration.
Oh yes, I am aware that millennials are generally not in great financial shape, as described in this Atlantic article. But, come on, a good life story can only be good, right?
