The first victim to be named following Monday night's terrorist attack in Manchester is 18 year old college student, Georgina Callander.
Just one day before, Georgina tweeted that she was "so excited" to see Ariana Grande, who she met two years ago at a concert in the very same arena.

Friends of Georgina, also known as Gina, described her as “a beautiful girl with the kindest heart and soul”.
Callander was even mourned by the star of one of her favorite tv shows, ABC's Once Upon a Time.
