Transcript of Teens
Why is it important to me?
I hope to use this project to tell about some of the great things that teenagers can do when they are given proper motivation. It sucks that I live in a society where young adults are treated like mute infants. No matter how much some might hate to admit it, everyone has been my age at some point. I am not saying that respect should be given, but I’d like the chance to be given the respect I deserve without being previously judged as “just a kid”. Yeah, there are young people that mess up, but if people only look for the negative, they’re going to find it.
I know I am not an unreasonable person. I think it is important to realize that everyone has the potential to do bad things, not just kids. There is no age barrier that is set in which one stops making mistakes and starts being perfect. Why does the mistake of one person affect how everyone else is looked at? I would like today’s youth to get the credit they deserve and for the slander of my generation to stop.
According to Generation Next, young adults today are “generally more happy with their lives and optimistic about their futures.” (PewResearch Social and Demographic Trends) The children of yesterday are no longer dreading their future. Instead, they face it with a smile on their face, bracing for impact. There has been research that suggests we are more “tolerant” (PRSDT) than past generations have been on sensitive subjects that have always been around but never discussed and certainly never accepted. My generation is making progress and promoting love and yet, we are the failures? People 18-25 years of age are classified in Generation Next. A generation not just full of kids, but full of the future.

The credibility of
It is interesting to me that I’m no longer a ‘kid’ when the government is taking money out of my paychecks but I am still too young to have valid opinions.. I, not even of the age of 18, pay my taxes and pay absurd gas prices and work for everything I have! Of course I do not have to, I live with my parents and I could probably be as lazy as I would like to be. I take responsibility for myself because it is nobody’s responsibility to baby me. It is important to me that not only I am taken seriously, but also other young people in my position.
