Selena Gomez is a philanthropic pop princess.
According to perezhilton.com, The Wizards of Waverly Place star recently returned from a trip to Ghana, where she was visiting the West African country as part of her duty as an ambassador for UNICEF. Gomez is the youngest-ever agent in the foundations history.
“I got to meet teens, I got to meet children, I got to meet families… It was completely life-changing and eye-opening,” said Gomez on her travels.
Selena, who hopes to earn $1 million for the foundation by the year’s end, has gladly taken on the role as an inspiration for both friends and fans alike.
“…I feel very honored to have a voice that kids listen to and take into consideration,” Gomez graciously admitted. “I had people on my tour asking me where IS Ghana, and they Googled it … and because I went there, they now know where Ghana is. So it’s pretty incredible.”
