While the specter of virus still currently hangs over, the younger generation will not hesitate to fight the pandemic setbacks through the digital world as it becomes the fundamental portal to progress and own their future.
The unfolding of the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated effects among people that is proving to be as much a threat not just to global public health as the virus itself but life in general. Although young people are less at risk, the pandemic proves to be a source of their stress that continues to interfere with their social lives, educational, career goals, and their wellbeing.
During this moment of uncertainty, Gen Z has been dealt a rough hand. The world as they know it has been placed on hold just as they begin to build their own path where they may discover who they can be. Their schooling was halted, their job ambitions were changed, and their plans were refocused on the short term.
However, technology advancements and social media create opportunities to keep these young people safe, informed and connected. They are also among the most active online, interacting with an average number of 4 digital platforms (such as, Twitter, TikTok, and Instagram) daily. The same tools also enable and amplify the passion and opportunities towards adulthood.
Raised as digital natives in times of cataclysm, they are one of those who have shown extraordinary determination and resilience. We have seen their determination that will recover and regain control of life. As they grow up, they have some necessities along the way. But all of them have one thing that cannot be negotiated. It’s a smartphone. This small but powerful device has made her overcome those difficult times.
This handy little gadget has opened an endless world of possibilities for everyone, where connections are nurtured, communities are built, and lives are uplifted. Smartphones have played a large role in the lives of Gen Zs, especially now as they power through their adulting journey. Phones allow them to access the latest information, stay connected to their circles, pay bills via mobile banking, book medical appointments online, and many other services with just a few taps.
