Selena Gomez is a CNN Hero

Disney starlet Selena Gomez hugs new pal Maria Ruiz from El Paso, Texas after awarding her the HERO award at the Second Annual CNN Heroes: An All Star Tribute held at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday.

Several times a week, Ruiz crosses the border into Juarez, Mexico, bringing food, clothing and toys to hundreds of impoverished children and their families. What a heart!

The 16-year-old Wizards of Waverly Place star looked all sophisticated in a ruffled BCBG white top, pencil skirt and simple black pumps!
