Selena Gomez is out to make a difference in the world. The singer took a break from her Instagram throne on Thursday to visit a couple of Los Angeles high schools with Coach and the Step Up campaign. Step Up is dedicated to inspiring girls by giving women a chance to speak and spend time with them. Selena was a surprise guest alongside Coach CEO Victor Luis at the two stops they made Thursday, and she hung out with the students after a short speech.
“I am truly thrilled to be involved with Coach and their support of Step Up,” Selena said in a statement. “Step Up’s mission to empower young women is personally important to me and something even more crucial in under-served communities. Working with the young women I met today was an inspirational experience I will never forget.”
Selena’s latest project is a Netflix series about bullying in schools, so she was a natural fit for the inspiration program.
