Singer SELENA GOMEZ is feeling inspired after returning from a trip Nepal to visit impoverished children on behalf of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
Gomez, who is an ambassador for the charity organization, jetted to the South Asian nation to bring attention to kids in need within the country, and the 21 year old was incredibly moved by the visit.
She says in a statement, "This visit to Nepal was extraordinarily powerful - at times, devastating and heartbreaking, 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."
Gomez has posted "selfies" and a video of herself playing with the youngsters at the Satbariya Rapti Secondary School on Instagram.com.
A week before sharing her pictures from the charity trip, Gomez posted a photo showing herself wading on the shore of a beach in a bikini, along with a caption that reads: "Taking my power back. Can't wait to show you where I've been."
In January (14), Gomez spent two weeks at a rehabilitation facility in Arizona, seeking help from specialists for an unconfirmed issue.
