Millennials have been dubbed the “seflie generation” — a phrase which tends to have a negative connotation. It’s synonymous with being self-obsessed or entitled, as if teenagers spend all of their free time glued to their iPhone cameras. (Come on, everybody! Give teens more credit.) Luckily, there’s a video that will change the way you think of selfies. No, not that “But first, let me take a selfie” song which tends to reinforce those seemingly shallow stereotypes. Instead, this video was made by a now 21-year-old girl named Rebecca Brown.
Brown began taking pictures of herself way before “selfie” even made its way into the dictionary. She started in 2007 at age 14, and has continued for the past six-and-a-half years.
