The former Disney star went to a hospital for a celebrity charity event and met someone who changed her life.
Selena said, "And there was this kid that wouldn’t look me in the eye at all. And I wear my emotions on my face, as you just have witnessed. And I don’t care, that’s who I am. I wanted to get his attention, even though maybe it was too much. So I just said, ‘Ask me anything you want.’ And he was the first person that I told, besides my best friend and family, because he asked me, ‘Have you ever dealt with anything like this?’ And I said, ‘I have lupus. I was in the ICU for two and a half weeks. I was in this exact same room.’ And it was the first time that he looked at me."
This is so beautiful and inspiring. We're applauding Sel that she was able to share this personal and private moment which may not have only helped her come out with the diagnosis publicly but really just helped this boy more than she could have ever imagined. You go, Selena!
