‘Wizards Of Waverly Place’ Star Selena Gomez Has A Heart-To-Heart With Her Alma Award

You might not know who Selena Gomez is if you’re over the age of 25 and have no younger family members. She’s incredibly popular though, known best as Alex Russo on Disney’s “Wizards of Waverly Place.” She also had roles in the Disney Channel movies “Another Cinderella Story” and “Princess Protection Program.” Gomez’s long-term goal is to join a band and take her music as far as she can, as she told MTV’s Jocelyn Vena in an interview last year.

Last week, Gomez took home a golden statue at the 2009 Alma Awards, an event which celebrates Latino artists across a range of industries. In the Daily TwitPic after the jump, you can see the young entertainer cradling her shiny new trophy, a contented grin on her face. Congratulations, Ms. Gomez. Here’s hoping Kanye West didn’t pop in to crash your acceptance speech.
