During adolescence, typically spanning from puberty until mid-to-late-20s, individuals are in a crucial time of learning and experiencing. This results in constant social, emotional, biological, and cognitive development as reflected by changes in neural networks in the brain. This period is also vital for seeking new experiences and exploring social hierarchies, which often coincide with one another. These explorations are often displayed through the adaptation of new cultural trends and influences. This unique combination of ambition and influential power allows adolescents to facilitate positive change into the world. Adolescence sets the tone for the future, and with proper foundation and support, a thriving adulthood awaits.
