Remember the months (okay, or years) of awkwardness we all went through? Marilee Allred certainly does—and she's started an entire movement to celebrate them. Participants in the Awkward Years Project post photos of themselves today along with one taken in their awkward years, then write about their growth process. Allred hopes that the project will help kids in the midst of their awkward years realize that there's much more life ahead of them.
