Selena Gomez is always giving back and she surprised some unsuspecting teens with the most amazing experience for World Kindness Day!
The 24-year-old entertainer showed up at two Los Angeles High Schools to mentor and inspire teen girls to dream big on Thursday (March 23).
Selena visited the schools as part of an event with The Coach Foundation & Coach‘s national charity partner Step Up, a charity with the goal to empower young women from under-resourced communities.
“@instagram is celebrating world kindness day and I got to spend it with people who fully will change our world one day. @coach introduced me to @stepupwomensnetwork which is an after school organization that encourages girls to believe that they have the capability to do anything they set their mind to. It’s crazy to me how much they are willing put others before themselves. #CoachXStepUP #DreamBig,” Selena wrote on Instagram.
FYI: Selena is wearing two Coach jackets.

Selena Gomez is trying to avoid haters and online trolls as much as she can.
The 24-year-old singer/actress is currently the most followed celeb on Instagram – she has over 114 million followers – but she admits she has to distance herself from all the negativity and cruel comments online trolls write to her.
“I delete the app from my phone at least once a week,” Selena told The New York Times. “You fixate on the negative ones. They’re not like, ‘You’re ugly.’ It’s like they want to cut to your soul. Imagine all the insecurities that you already feel about yourself and having someone write a paragraph pointing out every little thing—even if it’s just physical.”
Selena also shared in her Vogue cover story that she had to distance herself from Instagram because she was becoming too consumed with it, saying that it was “putting things in my head that I didn’t want to care about.”
