Do we underestimate the importance of the 20-something years? Live Q&A with TED speaker Meg Jay, Wednesday at 3pm Eastern
In her talk, clinical psychologist Dr. Meg Jay urges twentysomethings and those who know and love them to claim this period as their "defining decade" -- to focus not on identity crises, but on building for themselves what she calls identity capital.
So, have we been sending the wrong message with language like "kidults" and "30 is the new 20"? Bring your questions and comments to the live chat on Wednesday, May 15 from 3:00-4:00pm Eastern time.
Closing Statement from TED
From Meg Jay:
YOLO! You only live one, but hopefully that one life is going to go on for a long time. So be mindful about what you're doing, who you're doing it with, and where you're going. Be kind to your future self!
