About The Hashtag Generation
Millennials make up a generation that has grown up with the internet. We hashtag everything. The world is our oyster, and we capture it with our iPhone cameras and then upload it on Instagram (with a hashtag). But while we may be known as the “me, me, me generation,” we still want to make the world a better place. We care about activism, politics, pop culture, fashion, technology, and science. We are quite possibly the quirkiest, most educated, and most expressive generation out there, and this blog aims to reflect those interests and qualities (with a sprinkling of hashtags along the way).
I’m Aisha, and I’m a recent graduate of a top-25 law school who also has bachelor’s degrees in journalism and political science. Full disclaimer: the last time I had a blog was in the sixth grade (no, really – I taught myself HTML while I was in elementary school). I somehow managed to land myself a year-long legal fellowship, and so I guess I am officially beginning my trek into the real world. Join me, won’t you?
Things that strike my fancy: human rights, media issues, pop culture, American history, Kate Middleton’s wardrobe, coffee table books, acoustic guitars, frappuccinos, interior design, useless trivia, baking delicious treats, traveling, tennis, puppies, and going on adventures.
