Hi there! I am Marah Elizabeth, and I am so happy that you’re here! I’m a small town, Illinois native now living with my boyfriend just across the river from New York City (hey, Jersey apartments have more space AND it’s cheaper! #twofor).

Obsessed with food, personal development, and lifestyle design, my attention has always gravitated towards figuring out how to live my best life.


I started Making it Millennial in July 2016 after being laid off from my full-time job in program management at a start-up education nonprofit. Although a huge ego crusher, I hadn’t been truly happy in my role and chalk it up to fate taking over. I had been dreaming of starting a blog about my love of twenty-something lifestyle and personal development for ages and felt like it was the perfect time to do so. I’m excited to start being more of a creator and not just a consumer of content.

On my blog, I share tips ‘n tricks from my own life experiences and resources for growing personally and professionally with the intention to encourage and empower other female millennials to improve their own lives through intentional reflection and life experimentation.
