Selena is one of many female leaders setting the path for our future. “At times I feel selfish, I ask why, I ask how can this change,” the 25-year-old mentioned on her Instagram post.

The “Bad Liar” singer opened up about creating an impact and her relationship with fans on social media. “I like that they’ve seen my mistakes. I try to use that as a way to connect with them. That’s all I can do,” the star said.

"I can’t imagine what it would be like to grow up with that. It’s already difficult to get up every day and just feel good about yourself without seeing the highlights of everyone else’s life. That’s why I like being vulnerable with my fans on social media.”


However, Selena feels more connected because “there is a trust that I have with people my age or a little bit younger than I don’t think I would have if I started later.”

Selena credits her early career in Hollywood as the reason for empathy towards her followers.
