Happy July, millennials! This week's Millennial on a Mission is a collaborative writer who looks to bring the conversations of our generation to live through writing. Her current project, for everyone | from millennials, will be a collection of writings by millennials surrounding eighteen different topics.
Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like for you to meet Jennifer Greenhill.
Hailing from Prince George's County, Maryland, Jennifer graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in business administration and currently works as an Executive Assistant with an award-winning private equity firm headquartered in Washington, D.C.
CC: What inspired you to pursue your choice of career? What challenges have you faced in building your business/brand, and what have you learned from them?
JG: As a sibling to three sisters, I have developed in an environment that has prompted me to help and assist others on a daily basis. Career-wise, I enjoy conducting the day-to-day tasks the firm requires to effectively operate. On the other hand, my love is to write! In less than 140 characters, I am a collaborative writer who explores the small conversations of the world and transform them into literary works. The most challenging part of it all is to stay self-motivated to complete whatever literary project I am working on at the time in a timely manner.
To Jennifer, a Millennial on a Mission is someone who lives in the present fully and consciously. "I believe if everyone adopts that principle, the energy we contribute to this world and to each other will immensely make us charge toward positivity," she says. One piece of advice she would give to her millennial peers? Never give up. "It's okay to take a slower pace and a less traveled road -- just never give up."
