Selena Gomez released her album Rare earlier this year, and since then, fans (ourselves included) just can’t seem to get enough of it.
The album has so many inspiring and meaningful songs and lyrics throughout, and in honor of her birthday, we wanted to look at 4 times Selena inspired us and her fans! So, Selenators grab those tissues and lets get down to it!
She’s Been Open About Her Mental Health
It’s no secret that Selena has had many ups and downs in life, and talking about your struggles can be hard and overwhelming. However, Selena is so open with her fans about what she has struggled with mentally and physically that we can’t help but feel inspired by her. Many people can relate to and suffer from mental health issues themselves, so having someone we look up to be so open about her struggles makes us feel less alone.
Her makeup line Rare Beauty has also just announced the Rare Impact Fund, which will raise $100 million over the next 10 years to help address the gaps in mental health services to connect undeserved communities with access to mental health services. One percent of Rare Beauty sales and partner donations to form one of the largest known funds in support of mental health from a corporate entity. With the Rare Impact Fund, Rare Beauty is cultivating partnerships with leading foundations, nonprofit organizations, and companies to make a measurable impact on mental health by helping people feel more authentically connected by providing the tools, resources, and mutual support they need to thrive. We will definitely be supporting Selena and her beauty line from here on out!
She Isn’t Afraid To Take A Stand And Support What Is Right
Selena works diligently to help those in need and support great causes. Over her career she has been a partner with UNICEF, been a part of UR VOTE COUNTS, FRIENDS FOR CHANGE, a dosomething.org spokesperson, an ambassador to the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, a Make-A-Wish Foundation granter, and most recently she’s voiced her support of the Black Lives Matter Movement and even partnered with Plus1 Organization to create a Black Equality Fund to “amplify organizations on the frontline of ensuring Black voices are heard.”
She Always Takes The Time To Encourage Her Fans On Social Media
As someone who suffers from mental health, Selena always takes the time to tweet her fans some words of encouragement. Whether through replies or just a mass tweet, she lets them know how much she loves and appreciates them!
She’s A Proud LGBTQIA+ Supporter
As human beings, we should love and support each other regardless of anyone’s gender, sexual orientation, race, etc, and Selena proves that love, kindness, and acceptance can go a long way, and we should all take a lesson from her book.
There you have it Selenators, 4 reasons we find Selena inspiring. We want to wish Sel a happy happy birthday, and we hope it’s the best one yet!
