The coronavirus pandemic hasn't just led to classes and holidays being cancelled - it has also made it harder to mark the moments you come of age, whether in a religious ceremony, a birthday party, or graduation.
We spoke to four people - Gideon, 13, Lindsay, 14, Ariana, 15, and Liam, 22 - who had once-in-a-lifetime events upended by the coronavirus. They told us what happened - and how they found creative ways to celebrate.

'A quinceañera often costs as much as a car'
Ariana Diaz, 15, lives in Florida. Her family had planned to celebrate her 15th birthday with a quinceañera - a coming-of-age tradition that originated in Latin America. Quinceañeras can involve both religious ceremonies and a reception and party - and can take as much time and effort to plan as a wedding.
