10 Questions With Selena

1. How did your experience being MADE change you as a person?

It changed my personality from negative to positive. I found something that I want to stick with. Going to Baja helped me see out of my world and into the real world.

They want me to teach them how to surf!

3. If you could change one thing you said or did during MADE, what would it be?

Not to be so mean or quiet when people are talking to me, and definitely practice more!

4. What are you up to now?

I'll be acting and surfing on the side and doing hair still. Living my life with my family.

5. What was the hardest part about being MADE? Did you ever want to give up?

The cameras made it extra hard coming to the house early in the morning, waking me up and having to get up and talk to the camera. I wanted to give up when we went to Mexico because I wanted to do good and I didn't catch waves the first day, so I wanted to quit.
