Wow. Selena Gomez looked happier than ever during her UNICEF trip to Nepal, where she spent time with children in need. The children clearly inspired her, and they even brought her smile back!

Selena Gomez, 21, was clearly touched by the beautiful children she shared time with during her recent UNICEF visit to Nepal. During her trip, Selena spent a lot of time in the classroom to see how children learn and play on a day-to-day basis. By the looks of it, she sure had a great time during her visit!

Selena Gomez’s Peaceful UNICEF Trip To Nepal

We sure missed that beautiful smile of yours, Sel!

From May 20-23, Selena enjoyed three days surrounded by different groups of children while adapting to the culture of Nepal.

“During her trip, Selena witnessed firsthand the impact of UNICEF’s programs that help children survive and develop. She received an in-depth look at the organization’s work focused on education, nutrition, health and protection,” the organization told HollywoodLife.com in a statement.

Selena has been a UNICEF youth ambassador since 2009, and has been a critical part of shedding light on the world’s most vulnerable children thanks to her numerous campaigns and events.

Although these children have been through some horrific ordeals, they are recovering and working on building their education thanks to the help of UNICEF. Selena was not only able to join them in the classroom, but she spent lots of time playing and laughing with the children.

It has been a long time since we have seen Selena so genuinely happy and inspired! Clearly, those children brought as much light to her life as she brought to theirs.

Selena Needed Nepal To Find Herself Again

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Selena found the peace she desperately needed during her time in Nepal.

Not only did her smile return, but she sent a powerful message, presumably to her ex Justin Bieber, on Instagram during the trip.

“Taking my power back.. can’t wait to show you where I’ve been. I love y’all. Ps, I still obsess over pickles,” the singer captioned a photo of her smiling on the beach in a sexy bikini.

We hear you, Selena. Loud and proud!
