Selena Gomez is not only the new Ambassador for UNICEF's U.S. Fund, she's also going on a fact-finding mission to Ghana to learn more about the dire living conditions of that country's children. Gomez will work with UNICEF in its goal to eliminate preventable deaths among the world's children.

Selena left the country on September 3rd, and tweeted, "Tried to fall asleep, too much on my mind. So Papa made me cereal and told me about how met Nana. I’m going to be in Africa for a week. Hope you guys have a great week, I can’t wait to tell you all about the trip! Love you!"
