At 20somethings in 2014, I like to spotlight millennials who are making difference and disproving the stereotype that millennials are selfish and narcissistic.

So I was glad to find this Huffington Post article spotlighting seven millennials whose innovations are changing the world:

7 Millennials Who Are Too Busy Changing The World To Take Selfies  (huffingtonpost.com)

The millennials in this article, who are as young as 19, have made extraordinary achievements that include developing a computer that detects cancer, teaching coding to disadvantaged children, and using crowdfunding techniques to fund global medical care.

What these amazing millennials demonstrate is that you are never to young to make an impact. For ideas and motivation on how to make your own impact, check out this post that I wrote about DoSomething, an organization that supports millennial activism.
