From yearbook quotes to studio sessions with their idols, these artists are sharing their journeys in pictures.
Over the past week, people have been taking part in the “How it started: How it’s going” trend on Twitter. It’s been a wholesome way of showing what years of hard work and dedication can do.
Everyone from athletes to scientists have been sharing images from their past alongside a more recent one to put their journey into perspective. Artists joined in too and here are some of our favourites:
