Being a fan of yours since I was 4 years old, I have grown up to admire you. I basically saw you grow up in front of my tv, whether it was on Barney and Friends or Wizards of Waverly place, then you debuted on the big screen, which was something I thought was pretty amazing for a young actress like you. I know you haven’t been at your best these past months, life is hard out there. Now as an adult, I understand your struggles and emotions, and I can imagine it is not easy to be in the public eye with the situations you are going through. You’re a human being, and I know you have feelings too and that it hurts when someone breaks your heart or when other people let you down. But, the one thing I admire you the most is for the strength you have to come back out into the public eye. You have so much confidence and you make a powerful statement of what you are looking out for. You are living in the moment and you are living the dream. You inspire me to move along life. You have taught me never to give up my dreams, because if I fight for what I want, I will make my dream come true. I admire the fact you don’t let the put downs of the haters get in your way. And that you give us, your fans, the lectures of life-learning experiences you’ve gone through so we won’t commit the same thing. You have taught me to love myself and respect myself as a young woman, and that is something that takes a lot of courage to do. You’re such an amazing role model that so many young kids and teenagers look up to you. I reallyhope that you keep on inspiring people out there in the world! I am so proud of all your accomplishments, because you have gotten so far and I hope that you accomplish many more to come this year. Thank you Selena for always putting a smile on our faces everyday. You may not know every single one of your fans, including me, but I know I will always be here for you. Thank you for everything you do! I want to thank you for coming into my life because now I have someone look up to because I appreciate everything you do. I will always be here for you.
I love you and n e v e r stop smiling.
And even though we’re always against the odds
these are the things that have molded us.
