Hi there!
My name is Kimberly and I'm from Vancouver, BC. I started MLA as a way to share and help millennials through adulthood and the whole adulting process.
In this blog, you'll find real and honest examples of how I'm navigating adulthood. I've read a lot of content about growing up, but I have found it hard to find real-life examples of how to apply this advice.
So I created MLA as a space to share all the lessons of becoming an adult - on a budget! I hope you find this helpful and feel free to keep in touch at kimberly[at]millenniallifeadmin.com.
Lastly, if you’re looking for ways to further connect, I hope you’ll consider joining the MLA Newsletter!
Talk soon!
