Selena Gomez - Foundation Charity Ambassador

Actress and singer, Selena Gomez became UNICEF's youngest ambassador. At the age of 19, her charitable ways are far from slowing down. Ryan Seacrest's Foundation announced last Friday that Selena Gomez is the foundation's first charity ambassador. Seacrest, whose organization builds hospital "media centers" for TV, radio and new media stations that help lift kids' spirits and uplifts creative outlets, made an announcement on his radio show last Friday.

 

"From the beginning, I could tell that Selena really understood our mission,"  Seacrest said. "I’m so grateful that she’s decided to take on this larger role with us, joining our efforts to bring hope and spirit to seriously ill and injured kids. With her as ambassador, we will continue to expand our programs at children’s hospitals throughout the country.”; Seacrest said.

 

Early this year, Selena hosted her second annual charity concert which proceeds to UNICEF, but she doesn't just advocate from afar. She also took a trip to Ghana to see the programs firsthand, CNN reports.

 

"It was a really humbling experience for me," Gomez said to the news source of her time in Ghana. "I felt a presence from them that was overwhelming, their  energy was incredible after all they go through, and they still have a smile at the end of the day."

 

And then they asked why giving back means something to her, her answer was simple. "I'm very blessed to have a lot of fans," Gomez said, "and basically my goal is to use my voice to educate them on all these things."
