Heart Of Los Angeles

On a beautiful Saturday morning in spring, actress and singer Selena Gomez visited Heart of Los Angeles to the delight of the students. The group assembled in the Visual Arts Department and traveled through three craft stations.

As it was the day before Easter, the stations included dying Easter eggs, creating little Easter boxes and making flowers out of tissue paper. Selena traveled to all three stations working alongside HOLA kids of all ages.

The kids had the opportunity to chat with Selena, who was as excited as the kids were. Before she left, the kids presented her with a full bouquet of paper flowers. Selena was truly impressed with HOLA and hopes to return again in the not too distant future.

Thank you to our friends at the CAA Foundation for orchestrating the visit and for their ongoing support of Heart of Los Angeles.
