Hey, I’m Daniel!

I’m the Founder of Modern Teen.

I’m sure you’re here because you’re wondering who I am and why this is the best blog on the planet. Well, let me start with a little bit about myself:

I started this blog at 18 years old with one main vision in mind – to share useful knowledge to young adults so that they can be the best versions of themselves possible!

It’s so important as a young adult to grow your knowledge and be ahead of the game, which is why I wish I had this blog when I was younger.

I grew up being very independent, which made me teach myself how to do things and learn new skills.

All I want is to be able to transfer that information into a blog for all of you. If I had this blog to gather information from the start, I would’ve grown a lot quicker.

When I’m not blogging, I’m usually working out, playing volleyball, ping pong, archery, snowboarding, playing guitar, and exploring the Los Angeles area with friends (that’s where I’m from)!

School and College

After going to high school for about 2.5 years, I realized that I wanted to do more with my life. So at the end of sophomore year, I took a test that allowed me to graduate early and start college at 16 years old.

Then I went to college to study business for another 2.5 years and decided to drop out after that too. Don’t get me wrong, I had a pretty high GPA (3.9) in high school and in college as well.

College taught me a lot, but not academically. I simply stopped finding value in school.

If you feel the same way, then we probably have a lot in common. I can talk for hours about how the education system is a mess, but I’d rather provide insight for how to get through college a lot easier.

I am a naturally curious, research-heavy type of guy. That’s why I would never share any information that I don’t support, believe in, or that isn’t factual.

I would absolutely hate being lied to about information when I’m trying to better myself, so I would never, EVER, do the same to you.

Why This Blog Is So Awesome

I’ll freaking tell you why!

That’s because this isn’t just a blog, it’s a community.
