The dictionary defines a teenager as “a person of ages between 13 and 19 years.” A lot can happen between those years, and many of those experiences shape who we are. New friendships are forged, new lessons learned, fond memories are made, and bonds are even broken. For many, their teenage years are looked back on fondly with memories of friends and family during high school and early college years. Although, some were not as fortunate.
