“This visit to Nepal was extraordinarily powerful—at times, devastating and heartbreaking, but also incredibly inspiring,” said Selena Gomez. “I’m so proud to serve as a UNICEF Ambassador and be part of a greater movement to help the world’s children.”

During her trip, Gomez visited the child-friendly Satbariya Rapti Secondary School, supported by UNICEF, that has a safe, interactive, creative and fun learning environment for students.

After observing children studying math, science and language, she sat down with members of a ‘child club.’

Calling the trip an “eye-opener,” Gomez said, “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 is a recording artist, actress and designer. A UNICEF Ambassador since 2009, Gomez has played an active role in advocating for the world’s most vulnerable children by participating in campaigns, events, and initiatives on behalf of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF
