National Selfie Day is celebrated every year on June 21. Although the origin of the ‘selfie’ dates back to 1839, the trend does not seem to die down.

The first-ever Selfie in the world was created by  Robert Cornelius, an American chemist, who also became the founding father of photography.

The word ‘Selfie’ was founded in the year 2002, when Nathan Hope, an Australian man, got drunk at his birthday and posted a picture with the caption “sorry about the focus, it was a selfie”

In order to participate in the national selfie day celebration, you need to click a picture of yourself and post it on social media, mainly Instagram and add #NationalSelfieDay in the caption.
