Global Shapers Norfolk is looking for local residents between the ages of 18 and 34 to contribute to a local social experiment of sorts: They’re trying to find out what  it means to be a “millennial” in Hampton Roads in an effort to buck the oft-unfair associations that word carries. Participants will take over the organisation’s Instagram account to show what they value in the community, an Alt Daily post by the group explains. Check out this website for more details.
