Selena Gomez Named The Youngest Ambassador For UNICEF

| Filed under: InspirationDisneySelena Gomez


After being the spokesperson for their Trick-or-Treat campaign last October, Selena Gomez has now been officially appointed the youngest Ambassador for UNICEF!

What an honor!

Selenita says of her new charitable role:

"Every day 25,000 children die from preventable causes. I stand with UNICEF in the belief that we can change that number from 25,000 to zero. I know we can achieve this because every moment, UNICEF is on the ground providing children with the lifesaving assistance needed to ensure zero becomes a reality."

The Wizards of Waverly Place actress is heading off to Ghana this week on her first official field-mission as an Ambassador.

Caryl Stern, President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, is happy with their choice, stating:

"We're very pleased to have Selena join the UNICEF family, as a long time supporter, she will continue to capture and engage and audience of millions of young people to help ensure the health, education, equality and protection of every child."

And this is why she is one of our absolute favorite Disney stars!

Good for you, bb!

You're a real pole role model!

    why do you feel the need to change everyone's name mario (including your own)…..her name is selena, not "selenita" -

  2. 2

    Finally,someone I can look up too.

    When you're not as successful as Miley Cyrus and your CD tanks, you become a goodwill ambassador or what-not . . .

  5. 5

    Congradulations Selena! Keep up your good work! Stuff like this is what makes you the bigger and better person!

    You know, this girl creeps me out. Why? Because even though she is technically a teenager, she looks about ten years old to me. Why is Hollywood getting more and more obsessed with minors?? It's really disgusting the way the media is now turning to such young little girls, who barely even have pubes yet, to worship. Ick.

  16. 16

    Miley is nothing compared to her…shes sucha role model

  17. 17

    She is the only disney girl left who isnt even a bit slutty. Kudos to her. Plus shes the prettiest.

  18. 18

    I love her she is a great role model for young girls.

  19. 19

    now that is the face of a role model. shes amazing.

  20. 20

    Re: xJonasCyrus – im sorry, you must be mistaking her for miley, i mean, slutty cyrus. because this girl does have talent, and shes got brains.

  21. 21

    so awesome.
    selena is my favorite disney girl
    she's going to do great things

  22. 22

    Suck on that one slutty virus, u suck dick; she sells records.. NOW I understand how the music industry works for teens..

  23. 23

    Re: RobPnMeShouldB – hey retard.
    Selenita is not changing her name.
    IN spanish idk if you know that but its a form of saying its a younger girl and out of kindness. like sweety or hunny whatever. blah.

  24. 24

    This girl is awesome!! I have a four-year-old daughter that is just beginning to take interest in shows like Hannah Montana, iCarly, Wizard of Waverly Place, etc. I do everything in my motherly power to avoid Miley Cyrus as I believe she's outgrown her kiddie demographic and needs to move on to a more appropriate venue. She's more MTV than Disney. I do, however, like Selena Gomez. She seems to understand that she stands as a role model for many young girls and acts accordingly.

  25. 25

    Re: Nello:D – That doesn't make her a retard for not being able to speak spanish! Have some respect bitch..

  26. 26

    she's such a classy lil beauty.

    The poor (gay) man's Miley Cyrus.

    selena will be very succesful in time, at least shes not whoring herself out to get that attention of the paps, im sorry but selena has a life she loves and i also love her and HATE MILEY CYRUS

  31. 31

    how cute, what a nice role model - see Miley? No stripper poles involved.
    Nooot feelin the toga though…

    Re: BeautifulBrunnette69 – Hey Beautiful! TGIF! I think that is great about Selena! Where have you been. Missed ya! Just giving you a shout out for Friday! Have a great weekend!

    Re: candycaynegirl – Agree! Well said!

  34. 34


  35. 35

    i think she is amazing at everything she does. and gorgeous to top it off. for someone of her age to become part of UNICEF and geniunely do something with it, not just pose for pictures, I as a parent am glad that my children watch her!!

  36. 36

    When my 5 year old imitates pole dancing from watching Slutty Cyrus, it's time to turn the channel! Anything to do with her and the other ones who can't keep their clothes on are banned in my house.

    Selena, on the other hand is someone I would be proud to have my child look up to. Finally, a Disney star with morals who lives up to the Role Model status. Good for her!

    Re: BeautifulBrunnette69 – @ 26 - thanx dear! i still say he changed her name….HAHA!!!

    Who would consider this girl a role model is beyond me, she was whored in the entertainment industry by her parents where one does know there are more talented kids out there then her. An actual role model, would be none of those disney twats, but a child who actually focused on a decent education and if their show biz career fails they would have something to fall back on not like any of these children, they are doomed to whore themselves to the media all their life to earn a decent living. A perfect example is lezlo

    Nice to see someone young setting a good example! She’s doing well for Humanity. Unlike Miley "whore" Cyrus, who considers "pole dance" creative art. Her humanitarian duties consist of spreading her legs for all the perverted old men to see.

  44. 44

    Ha while Miley Cyrus grinds the pole for all her fans its nice to see a good role model for young girls

  45. 45

    I love Selena :D
    I hate Disney puppets but she is just so sweet :)

  46. 46

    Re: Angiekinz – The girl's name is MILEY. Get that? MILEY. And Miley does have talent, who sings live? Miley. Who doesn't? Smelena. That's right. Miley has talent, Smelena Gomez doesn't. Bye bye.

  47. 47

    Re: jesyrene

    When you're not an attention seeking whore who likes to poledance and dress like a stripper then you do good stuff like this. Admit it, with all the fame and influence Miley has she could definitely make a change but that talentless hick decides to turn a blind eye, whereas Selena actually chooses to good.

  48. 48

    Ummmm cool i guess…

  49. 49

    Go Selena! =) I love you Sweetie! =)

  50. 50

    Better than miley.

  51. 51

    Re: Eris – My thoughts exactly. So the teenager who has no option besides studying diligently to make A's so they can get into a good college and make a name for themselves is one-upped by these showbiz kids. I have no doubts that this opportunity was handed over to her because of who she is. Meanwhile, what do the students who spend 15 hours or more a week get for all of their efforts?

  52. 52

    Re: BeautifulBrunnette69 – Something happened to my comment! But, I get it. MUAH!

  53. 53

    thats a purdy picture of the little chipmunk

  54. @v@ says – reply to this


    She looks like an angelic vision in this pic. So when does her sex tape come out?

  55. @v@ says – reply to this


    Don't all the Disney teens rebel in their efforts to change their image into a more mature one so that they're not pigeon holed?

  56. 56

    gorgeous wonderful lovely girl

  57. 57

    miley is gonna be mad!!!

  58. 58

    This girl is such an inspiration. She's truly someone kids should look up to. She's so kind, loving, humble and SO sweet! I think she has everything that makes a true STAR and I'm so glad she's heading in a great direction, straight to be a succesful and loved girl, which she alredy is. The world does NOT need more self-centered, slutty and stupid ppl like Miley, if you ask me. It needs people who really CARE about all the shit around'em and ppl really willing to do something about it. Congrats to Selena ;) .

    I Really Do Look Up To Her x

  64. 64

    i dont get why whenever miley cyrus does something like wearing short shorts, you make a huge deal about it and when selena's grandmother calls miley cyrus a slut, you do nothing about it. why is everyone so quick to hate on miley?

  65. mp23 says – reply to this

    shes not your favourite, you know miley is. you probably have all her albums and know every single song haha.

    Re: thommy123 – that wasn't selena's real grandmother it was a hacker who hacked into her account

  75. 75

    Congratulations to Selena! :)
    Though I'm not really a fan of her, I think she could be a great ambassador.
    I hope she'll use her new title and power to do good and to be a good influence.

  76. 76

    Selena is pretty much the only Disney star i actually like–THIS is why!!!! :) Good for her!
