"I feel confident in who I am and what I went through" Selena Gomez says as she shows off her scar

Selena Gomez took to Instagram to open up about the scars from her kidney transplant.

The singer posted a photo of herself wearing a blue zip-up one-piece bathing suit. In the photo, she strikes a pose that exposes a long scar on the inside of her right leg.

She then went on to describe how far she's come and to give a shout out to the swimwear designer, her best friend Theresa Mingus.

She wrote: "When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar. I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up. Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through...and I’m proud of that. T - Congratulations on what you’re doing for women, launching @lamariette whose message is just that...all bodies are beautiful.."
