I belong to the oldest part of the Generation Z spectrum. I grew up with all the world's knowledge at my fingertips, everything just one Google search away. Whatever I had a question to, I also had an answer. Whatever I was curious about, I could learn in an instant. I am a master of none. Not because my knowledge of the things I care about is superficial, but because I will always know that there is so much I don't know. I tend to throw myself into the things I care about with a (sometimes scary) fierce passion, making me a person with deep knowledge of many things (see hobbies).
Perhaps it isn't the things I do that define who I am, but who I am that defines what I do. I am curious. I am passionate. I am kind. I am generous. I am a leader. What I do depends on who you ask, but when asked about who I am, you'll always be greeted with the same answer: I am a kind friend.
Most importantly, though, is what drives me to do the most is the idea that things aren't as good as they could be. It is my personal legend to affect change and improve lives. That can be done in many ways, including my recently closed nonprofit, The 52 Million Project. Right now, however, I'm choosing to affect change by sharing my photo project where I drove to all of the lower 48 US states in 12 weeks to ask 1,000 strangers for life advice before photographing them on a 50-year-old camera.
