What are millennial adults up to this summer 2017? While these practical considerations are important, the key draw for millennial summers is the experience. Young adults want to experience something exciting and different each and every break they get in a year. Whether they’re a fresh graduate or a young entrepreneur, it is of great importance that they are able to share their experiences with peers. These four local and global Filipino young adults share their secrets, tips, and experiences to a successful summer.




“My secret to a successful summer is a ticket to somewhere you haven’t been before, where you can do something that you have never done, either alone or with people you can do it with all over again. Summer is when I have enough time to take a pause and look at anything and everything from a new perspective, both literally and figuratively. By looking at a different horizon, or a different skyline, or how each and every mountain can show you a different sunset can reveal to you all the countless possibilities that this life has to offer and that the world is definitely your oyster. A successful summer to me is when I wander and get lost in a far away place in the hopes of somehow finding myself. It is when the simple things like sand in your toes and a cold beer in your hand remind you that life isn’t that bad at all.”

But besides that, I’m a struggling vegan, triggered feminist, self-proclaimed environmentalist, Facebook social justice warrior, and everything else you find annoying.
