I am part of the Generation X (1965–1980) / Xennials (1970s to early 80s) era — the years vary slightly in different sources — I reside in the remaining years of Generation X and Xennials years — I am categorically not a millennial! 🙅🏻♀️

One of the top priorities for the Sustainable Development Goals is to ‘End Poverty In All Its Forms Everywhere’ by 2030.
