Thinking back to middle school can be very comical “like wow I’ve changed so much”. Now there is a trend called the Glo-up challenge. Its when people take one picture of themselves from the past and compare them to now. All you have to do is put the pictures side by side and see the results.  Achona went around and asked Academy students to show pictures of them when they were going through their awkward stage and compare to them now and wow look at these results..

Everyone goes through an awkward stage as their growing up then we all turn into beautiful young women. It is fun to look back on the old memories and pictures that you thought were the cutest things ever (at the time) and compare them to how you look now. Academy girls really have seemed to “Glo-Up”, and they will probably look back on these pictures in ten years and laugh at how much they have changed since then.
