SO Inspirational! Teen Manchester Bombing Victim Live-Tweets Her Recovery

After Monday’s horrifying attack at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, one survivor is showing the world her strength!

Millie Robson had just gotten to meet the starlet ahead of the show, but her night ended in disaster when she was hit by shrapnel from the bomb while leaving the arena to meet her dad.

She’s only 15.

The teen has taken to Twitter since the bombing to live-tweet her recovery, and her strength and bravery is so obvious. We are so moved!

Millie first posted:

Thankfully, Millie is on the mend:

We continue to wish Millie all the best as she recovers from her injuries, as well as all the others who fell victim to such a horrible act.
