Taking a gap year is hardly a revolutionary idea. Our European and Australian counterparts are champs at it. Nonetheless, many view this time as a setback, a waste of time, money and the chance to get a jump on that all-important career. This is short-sighted.

Generation Y and Millennials seem to have decided that the problem with modern politics is our leaders do not inspire us.

It has become fashionable to trash millennials. They lack a strong work ethic, have no grit, aren't respectful or patient, and definitely don't understand corporate culture.
