My son is a zoomer. He was a hardcore gamer. He turned 21 in April. He became an official computer engineer as of this week - he's graduated. He's already working in his field and has been for more than a year.

I find myself "following" this generation on social media. I like their detached style and I feel they are kind, overall. I think they're interesting, authentic and industrious as a generation.  I don't think the older generations have done right by them.... saddling them with debt, and such.  But they're quite creative and may very well save the world.

Do you see zoomers coming up in the world? I guess they're called, "emerging adults".

Hah.

That’s fantastic about your son. What a smart, young man he is ?.

I have experienced zoomers through my niece, nephew, uni, & customer service. I have found them to have a good dose of curiosity about the world, and are very open to learning new skills and ways of doing things. When they have asked me questions about topics, I notice they really listen and take it all in. They also are environmentally aware, and appear to want to do the right thing.

When I’m out shopping, I’m happy to be served by this gen, as they are generally most pleasant.

I feel very sorry for how this year’s events have negatively impacted their adulthood’s.

His girlfriend is similar. She's a year behind him and she'll be a nurse. They intend to marry a year after she graduates and have a baby a year after that. This would make him married with a baby and a career, before he's 25. This has been his ambition from what I could see, for more than ten years. I think they're going to have a happy life. Bath bombs and cheesecake. They're really in love.

The people I read in this age group are none of that, ok boomer, bs. They differentiate themselves but that's it. They seem confident in a way. Like then don't have to please people but acting like a dick is not interesting to them? It's just not interesting to be anti-social.

They're very different from how media seems to want to portray them.

They may be thick-skinned due to the internet. Been online hurt a million times. Water off a duck's back.

It’s awesome that your son has found a good partner to share his life with. Sounds like they both have a good head on their shoulders, and are very committed to one another. What a perfect foundation to raise a family from ?.

The majority of the zoomers I know, are not superficial. They appear natural, grounded and unaffected.

It seems that way to me as well. Unaffected. I just wonder how they managed to become this way. They enter rooms and conversations sans veneer. It's no small thing!

You must be very proud of your son, Elsa. I'm sure he worked very hard to become a computer engineer. Its not an easy study. I'm glad he has found a girlfriend that has her own aspirations but also wants the same things in life that he does.

My niece and some of my friend's kids are young Zoomers. They're in their late teens and are more like adults than some adults I know. They're so focused and disciplined I have to remind myself that they are just kids when I talk to them. They're very responsible for their age. Despite all the problems they may face now and in the future, this group seems unfazed by any obstacles and just plows ahead.

This generation gives me hope for the future.
