A micro generation of those born from 1993-1998, graduated high school from 2012-2016.

Zillennials are the last years of Millennials and first years Generation Z with mixed traits of both generations. They are too young to relate to the core of Millennials but too old to relate to the core of Generation Z. Zillennials were 2000's kids and transitioned from teenagers to adults during the 2010's. The youngest in 2020 are 21 years old.

Technology evolution was a defining part of a Zillennial childhood. They grew up while technology was evolving from Analog to Digital, experiencing both worlds, opposed to millennials / generation z who only experienced one type.

Some of the various things Zillennials can remember are:
- Waiting at Barns & Noble as kids for the Harry Potter books to release
- a World before social media / smart phones was popularized
- the Popularization of smart phones during their years in high school (2008-2016)
- Using Gameboy Advance / Advance SP during their childhood
- Seeing car designs go from boxy 80's designs to sleek 2000's curves
- liking mid-2000's bands like Green Day, Good Charlotte, Franz Ferdinand, Black Eyed Peas, Fallout Boy, Panic! At the Disco, The Killers, etc.
- When "Crank Dat" by Soulja Boy came out in 2007
- The Release of the first iPhone in 2007
- Watching early YouTubers like: Fred, early nigahiga, Nalts, thewinekone, Daxflame, early smosh
- Being too young to understand or remember 9/11, but being born before it.

Zillenial is a micro-generation like Xennials. The zillenial micro-generation includes anyone born between 1995-2002.

Zillenials can relate to both the Millenial generation and the Gen-Z generation.

Because they have mixed traits of both generations (and they are too young to relate to the core of Millennials but too old to relate to the core of Generation Z), they have become known as their own generation.

Zillennials were 2000's kids. The youngest Zillenials are 19. Zillenials also like to refer to themselves as “honorary members of the Black Eyed Peas”.

Technology evolution was a defining part of a Zillennial childhood. They grew up while technology was evolving from Analog to Digital, experiencing both worlds, opposed to millennials / generation z who only experienced one type. Zillenial kids probably played with flip phones before receiving a smart phone.

-a lot of Zillenials Were too young to understand or remember 9/11, but most were born before it or within 6 months after it.

-a lot of Zillenials shared the childhood of older millennials because of hand me down toys.

Anyone born during or after 1995. You were not a 90's kid, you were a 90's tot. You are a 2000's kid. You grew up with iPhones, iTouches & iPods. In other world: You're an iGen
Zillenials love to think they're 90's kids, when they were really just 90's toddlers.

Any individual born between 1995-2000.

Nobody knows whether they’re a millennial or gen Z so we settled on the next best thing.

A micro "generation" of many of those born from, aproximately, from 1993 to 1998.

They are those who, having being born in the last years of the Y Generation and in the first years of the Z Generation, due to their personal circumstances, shares a lot of the traits of a millenial, if they are zoomers, or the contrary, a lot of traits of the zoomers if they're millenials.

Just as, a zoomer can have remarkable traits of the X generation and not being a true mix of differents generations, there are people born before of after the popular cohort of zillenials, and still be zillenials, or even people born between those years who are not zillenials but a millenial to the core o zoomer to the core.

Zillenials, more than anaything, are people wich were 90' or 2000' kids outside countries not dominated by "the core west values", like China, 90' or 2000' kids with traits of both millenials and zoomers, who lived in countries like Japan, Korea, USA, Portugal, Mexico or Chile.

A micro-generation, born between 1993-1998.

They can relate to multiple audiences and generations.

They grew up in a time where technology was transitioning from Analog to Digital, they experienced and can easily relate to both of these worlds. They act as a bridge to the gap between generations and they can communicate effectively with both.

They were there for the early days of Youtube, and they're still there. They probably started a channel that they forgot about hoping to be the next "CharlieIsSoCoolLike". They blue-toothed N-Dubz tracks to each other at school and illegally downloaded torrents to their iPod Touch's. They care about bringing generations together and are often budding activists for positive societal change.

As a self-proclaimed 'lost generation', they often make up for their lack of acknowledgement through immense levels of humour, understanding and of course, wild creativity.

Employer 2: "It says here she's a Zillenial* so she can tap into multiple audiences"
Employer: "Oh shit, that's actually very useful, definitely worth inviting to an interview for this role"
