“From a Millennial’s Perspective”
Interview with Princeton Alumni
Millenials are now the largest portion of the US workforce. They have the lowest employee and consumer engagement levels among the generations. They are the most politically independent, and 71% use the internet as their primary news sources. The majority of them are “unaffiliated” religiously. What are they thinking? What drives them? What are their values and ethics?

Kate Gardner, Princeton University class of 2016, hails from Washington, DC, and currently, lives in New York City. She is passionate about helping people and organizations discern and tell their stories wholeheartedly, especially with an eye toward developing empathy. Majoring in English at Princeton led her to write her senior thesis on virtual reality storytelling, for which she traveled to San Francisco, Seattle, and the Sundance Film Festival. Out of the project, she gave a TEDxPrincetonU talk on the narrative power of the developing immersive medium. She loves fostering experiences of and conversion around faith, and produced a festival-selected virtual reality documentary in a unique African religious context. Her other interests include the intersection of faith and work, non-profit development, church ministry, and never leaving the house without a good piece of literature (in some cases, on a scarf around her neck).
