I am very happy with my life now and especially to be there. I live my life in the here and now and do not want to looking too much at what I have experienced. So, for example, I am standing on a red carpet, then let photographers shoot their images, but then do not look back at those photos. That gives me peace of mind. ” With this, Selena hopes to inspire other young women not to be fooled by what the outside world thinks of them. “There are so many beautiful girls with beautiful and different characters, but they are chasing an unattainable ideal image that will break them. They want to be a totally different person than they really are.
