You know how our parents say we’ve grown up right before their eyes? They got to watch us mature every day and by the time they blinked, we are now adults with kids of our own (or not, individual’s choice). But thanks to the availability of smartphones and incredible dedication, not to mention impressive video editing skills, we literally got to see this teen grow up from seventh grade to college.

We previously got to see Andrew and his impeccable dedication to selfies, taking one each day from the age of 14 to the age of 20. He literally grew up before our very eyes in just the minute and thirty seconds that his video lasted. The result is astonishing!

Hugo Cornellier took Andrew’s selfie game and upped it a few levels. He took a selfie of his face every single day from the ages of 12 to 20-years-old in order to document the aging and growth in a teenager. The result is an incredible time lapse!

Yes, ladies and gents, an actual timelapse of a boy that has just begun to understand the world of adults, budding into a splendid young man! He looks so young and genuine, but we get to see him grow his first stubble, shave it off and change a couple of hairstyles (because hair is to be experimented on!). We saw how his facial features became sharper, he put on some weight, took it off, then broadened his shoulders and endured all sorts of changes. We are in awe with Hugo’s dedication and discipline!

All we are left with is to watch old photos of us and complain how selfies weren’t a thing back then...
