Millennial can be described as the generation that has more of technology and a towering amount of economic hardships. College can be the key to success if I choose the right path. Sometimes that path can come with trials and tribulations. During my journey throughout college, I do not plan to take out any loans if possible. Many people in my generation have obtained a ludicrous amount of student debt. When I was reading an article by Dale Stephens called “Do You Really Have to Go to College,” it made me think about the reasons why college is important. People have drilled over and over in my head that I have to go college in order to be successful. The truth is, college is not for everyone because some people can be successful without a college degree. My case is different because I want to become an orthodontist. How can I put braces in people mouths if I have not had the right guidance or teachings? I would need to know all the fundamentals for teeth alignment; therefore, college will definitely help me in the future.
Millennial generation is believed to be the generation that spends a bizarre amount of time using technology instead of reading a newspaper. Technology has been helpful with essays and blogs related to orthodontics. Today, orthodontists have technological appliances that helps the orthodontist’s job become a whole lot easier. Technology has also made many benefits on society. Instead of reading newspapers, I am able to look at the news on any of my mobile devices. It is true that technology may have some setbacks but some computers have jobs that are more useful to a human’s job. I remember when humans actually took a patient’s pulse. Now the patient can get their pulse taken through a machine. Machines and other technological advices helps people, such as doctors, become more precise with diseases and other illnesses. According to Pew Research, my generation is “the only generation for which these new technologies are not something they’ve had to adapt to.” Millennial generation help establish new technological advances.
I considered myself to apart of the millennial generation because my generation has done a lot of fantastic things such as technological advances. I only consider that the things my generation have done so far is only the beginning of the things my generation will do in the future. If I am anything, if we are anything, we are changing the world one step at a time.
