A Typical Millennial Response' is a collection of writings dedicated to re-shape the unpopular narrative of millennials, sharing personal accounts of young people, struggling to find their place in the world. Having inherited socio-economic challenges that aren’t necessarily their own, Ryan refutes the term 'millennial', shedding insight into the long-standing ideals of young people being mistaken as new-age trends and how at the end of the day, they're just trying to cultivate a life worth living.
