In the first few seconds of the opening clips, Selena can be heard saying: “Just be who you are, Selena. Nobody cares what you’re doing, it’s about who I am – being right where I am. I’m grateful to be alive.”
“Let me make a promise: I will stop living like this”, the singer continues.
Through tears, the 30-year-old artist continues to share her struggles, saying: “My whole life, since I was a kid I’ve been working. And I don’t want to be super famous. But, I know that if I am, I have to use it for good.”
Among her many charitable contributions, in 2020 with the launch of her beauty brand, Rare Beauty, Selena founded the Rare Impact Fund. This is a project that supports organizations that expand access to mental health services in schools and educational settings and 1% of all their cosmetics sales go to the charity fund.
“I’m happier and more in control of my emotions and thoughts than ever before. […] I know this is the beginning for me”, she concludes.
