David Sedillo

My name is David Sedillo and I am currently a 21 year old Senior in college at the University of New Mexico. My major is Political Science with a minor in Business Management. I am currently in the process of writing a book that highlights our generation, Generation Y, in a way that both explains who we are and highlights what we are capable of. I am motivated by the fact that most accounts of our generation are told by those who cannot fully understand it (i.e. they're too old). Part of this book will feature real words from members of Gen Y, which will be unedited stories, comments, thoughts, etc submitted through the Google Doc I have set up. The stories I have received so far range from inspiring to heartbreaking. I have always considered writing a passion of mine. I was a member of the my high school newspaper's staff for 4 total years and eventually became editor-in-chief my Senior year. In college, I've continued with this passion through an internship at the university's Communication and Marketing Department, which I've held for the past 3 1/2 years. I've lived in Albuquerque, NM, Denver, CO, and Knoxville, TN growing up and have been fortunate enough to travel across the country as much as possible, thanks to my parents' love for traveling.
