I'm aware that because I'm in my thirties I'm no longer young and hip and cool. And I'm OK with that because I was never really hip or cool - I pretty much always had an unhealthy disdain for popular culture so I'm fine with that.
But what if you're in a line of work where it's integral that you're able to identify with those who are younger than you and make you think you're not such a square?
A line of work where you want young people to feel safe to come to you and see you as a voice that can understand where they're coming from? Like a police officer, maybe?
