Selena Gomez Surprises Los Angeles High School Students at Step Up Event
Selena Gomez showed up at a high school in Los Angeles to honor young girls through her work with the Step Up Foundation and Coach. As the designer’s star brand ambassador, she visited the school to spread the after-school program’s message of empowerment.
The event was surprisingly casual. Gomez mingled with students and imparted advice to the kids to “love yourself first.”
In a statement to People, Gomez explained why she is working with Step Up: “Step Up’s mission to empower young women is personally important to me and something even more crucial in under-served communities. Working with the young women I met today was an inspirational experience I will never forget.”
