A Southern California college student studying abroad in Paris was one of the 129 people killed Friday night in terrorist attacks.
Nohemi Gonzalez was 23 years old.
Her family called her Mimi. She was left-handed and had a tattoo of Pocahontas on her left arm. At the vigil held for her at Cal State Long Beach on Sunday night, her classmates, family and faculty wore feathers in her honor as the choir sang.
It was a somber affair, but everyone who got up to speak talked about how Gonzalez was anything but.
They said she was petite and full of energy. They called her a firecracker and a rabbit — hopping around the design school of the Cal State Long Beach campus eager to help anyone who needed it.
