On religion: "I don't consider myself religious. It's about my faith and connection to god. It's not something I talk about a lot." She also revealed she no longer attends Hillsong.
On lupus: "The lupus was a huge thing that happened to me, then the kidney thing happened, and that was the scariest because, yeah, you could actually die. The moment I came out [of the surgery] I remember starting to shake and my mom screaming and then being put back under."
On self esteem and mental health: "I had low self esteem, and that's something I work on continously. But I feel so empowered because I've gained so much knowledge about what was going on mentally. And my highs were really high, and my lows would take me out for weeks at a time. I found out I do suffer from mental health issues. And, honestly, that was such a relief. I realized that there was a way to get help and to find people that you trust. I got on the right medication and my life has completely changed."
On auditioning: "I want to do movies so bad. I want to do TV so bad. I find that I look too young most of the time, or people can't separate the two [the real Selena from the character], which bums me out. I continue to audition and I just have to wait for whatever my time is."
