Selena Gomez is feeling confident and proud, and is showing the world her kidney transplant scar, three years after receiving a new organ from her best friend.
In a caption accompanying a picture posted to Instagram, Gomez, wearing a blue swimsuit, said at first she found it difficult to show her scar.
“When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar. I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up,” she wrote on Instagram on Thursday.
“Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through…and I’m proud of that,” she said.
