Selena Gomez opened up about her rise to fame and missteps along the way during a speech at We Day California on Wednesday.

Addressing young fans, the singer-actress gave an inspiring talk advising them to “stay true to yourself,” and admitting that at one point she gave in to bad influences.

Gomez revealed, “I lost sight of who I was. I listened to opinions of people, and I tried to change who I am, because I thought the others would accept me for it. And I realized I don’t know how to be anything but myself.”

“I’ve learned from my actions, and for all the things I’ve done, I’m proudest of that,” explained the star. “I’ve learned from my mistakes.”

She added, “You are who you surround yourself with.”
