On Monday, Selena traveled to the coastal city of Valparaiso with UNICEF. There, she met with some of Chile’s poorest women. No doubt they were once full of hope as children. As they matured, poverty brought indignities that would challenge the strongest among us.

They thanked UNICEF for helping them find their way out of poverty so they can provide for their children.
