It’s been three years since Selena Gomez received a kidney transplant from her friend Francia Raisa after she suffered organ damage caused by lupus. Now, the star is done hiding her scar, and instead is embracing it as a sign of strength.

Gomez shared a photo to Instagram on Thursday (Sept. 24) in a sleek blue swimsuit from her friend Theresa Marie Mingus’ new swim line, La’Mariette. Her scar is visible on the inside of her thigh. “When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar,” she captioned the stunning snap. “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.”

She also shouted out Mingus for making a company “whose message is just that…all bodies are beautiful.”
