It is hard to believe that singer and actress Selena Gomez is still only 21 years old, as she seems to have been in the entertainment industry forever and has already been through so much in her short life. Selena has had a lot of ups and downs over the past few years but it finally seems like she has put her dark days behind her.
Selena Gomez recently took a trip to Nepal with UNICEF and she has revealed how it has really made her open her eyes. Selena says that seeing such hope and promise in the children there has made her feel much more optimistic about her own life.
Gomez explained, "This visit to Nepal was extraordinarily powerful -- at times, devastating and heart-breaking, but also incredibly inspiring. At first when you witness children living in extreme poverty you wonder how it is possible that they can be deprived of their basic human needs and rights. Then you talk to these children and you see hope, promise and a bright future."
She added, "The children of Nepal have taught me that with a lot of passion, optimism and hard work, anything is possible. That's the message I would like to convey to young people across the world: Believe in your dreams and pursue them."
Selena Gomez has enjoyed a very successful music career to date, as well as proving that she has what it takes as a Hollywood actress. We hope to see Selena Gomez making the most of both her music career and her acting career over the coming years, giving us some new music and some new movies along the way.
