I am a member of the Millennial Generation, and Drive All Night is my attempt to document the wildly diverse triumphs and tribulations of my generation and their invaluable worth to young people. Every generation needs stories that inspire empathy, consciousness, and in hard times, the hope of redemption. And when I look to the Millennials I have encountered in life – more often than not, I see displays of ingenuity, strength, and altruism.
Drive All Night will feature firsthand accounts from Millennials who have survived the post-recession economy and achieved some measure of personal happiness on their own terms, as well as Millennials who are still struggling to start their lives against a backdrop of economic ruin. These stories will not only appear on this blog, but a handful will enjoy a life in print as well. I am currently hard at work turning the stories Drive All Night into a forthcoming book. The finished narrative will be drawn from two months of travel and Millennial interviews which I undertook this past summer.
