about this item

Jamie Borromeo is a Millennial (those born between the years 1980-2000) with a uniquely illuminating perspective on her generation and its interaction with the business, political, and social spheres.

"Young, Educated, and Broke", a travel journal memoir, is the intertwined journey in self-exploration of a young twenty-something and her Millennial cohort in America.

Borromeo’s social commentary takes the reader around the world to witness firsthand her path to personal growth, as she watches the tragedies and triumphs of her life mirror those of her generation.

During the 2008 economic collapse and the years that followed, the author shares her emotional highs and lows and the insights gained. The author and the generation of “America's New Poor” struggle to find a sense of identity, purpose, and security. The questions begin to pile up: Will I pay back my student loans? Was the American Dream really a myth? Will I ever be able to attain financial freedom and security?

While the generation as a whole is still grappling with these questions, Borromeo’s personal journey inward takes the reader through the answers the she herself has found. In her last destination on the Big Island of Hawai’i, the author looks inward and finds answers that hold tremendous value for her life that may yet serve her generation in an even more profound way.
