If I have to pick a role model who I would consider as a modern-day hero, it would be three time MTV Music Video Awards nominee and one of the leads of the now defunct Disney Channel series Wizards of Waverly Place — Selena Gomez.
She was born and raised in Grand Prairie, Texas with humble beginnings. From there, she appeared in Hannah Montana is Mikayla, Hannah Montana’s rival. That started her career as a Disney star. She then got her lead role in Wizards of Waverly Place as Alex Russo. The show lasted four seasons.
She’s also known as the girlfriend of Canadian singer Justin Bieber, but she’s more than that. She will Write Your Name across her heart and she inspires me to say everything I need to say — to just act Naturally about everything. Life may have ups and downs, so sometimes we need to Slow Down, but instead of going Round & Round, we have to Come & Get It.
Who Says we won’t be able to achieve our dreams? Selena Gomez definitely won’t say that. She’ll tell you that you were born to Save The Day and although Falling Down is unavoidable, you have to rise up because you were made to make the Stars Dance because we were born to succeed Like A Champion. She’ll tell you to Love Like A Love Song because Love Will Remember, and unlike her friend Miley Cyrus who Can’t Stop twerking because of the Blurred Lines, she’ll tell you to Hit the Lights and dance along to the B.E.A.T.
Selena Gomez is an inspiration to all teenagers. She is admirable and is one of the most respectable figures to break out of their Disney image, and for that I consider her a modern-day hero; not because she saved the world, but because she helps teenagers like me to mature without getting lost in a haze of confusion, like Miley Cyrus who fell off The Climb or Lindsay Lohan who, from a Mean Girl turned into a meth girl.
