Teenage years is the most beautiful yet struggling phase in one's life. Laughter and tears, sweetness and bitterness are all mixed together throughout the journey of our exploration of the world and one's inner self.

No matter how different or challenging the teens years are, one thing is in common: our growth. A girl can grow into an independent woman defeating her shortcomings and winning true love; a boy can become a man at the victory of his own fear and trouble.
