UndiMsia! Chats - "Millennials: The Entitled Generation?"
On 30th September 2017, I was invited by UndiMsia!, a civic campaign by human rights NGO Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR) to speak in a panel on millennials. Held in their office (Pusat Rakyat LoyarBurok in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, I joined two fantastic panelists - Mr Fuad Rahmat (Project Dialog & BFM) and Jean Vaneisha (Challenger Malaysia). This session was moderated by Mr Koh Xiu Heng from MCCHR.
Some of the points we discussed:
Generation: a group of people born within a certain period of time who shared age and experiences shape a distinct worldview
Millennials (AKA Generation Y) born roughly from 1980s to 2000
The most educated generation
Civic-oriented and socially conscious
Myth: Lower self-esteem, highly self-absorbed, narcissistic, and entitled
Myth: Job hopping, lack of patience
