There are so many moments in the aftermath of the Manchester attack last week that inspired us, from the way the community clubbed together to open their homes to stranded teens, to the homeless men at the scene who administered first aid to the injured. Seven days later, and we continue to be moved by the response to the attack, not just from the general public, but from those who survived, too.

One survivor, 15-year-old Millie Robinson, who was injured as a result of the suicide bombing at the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena, has been tweeting her recovery from hospital.

Millie’s legs were seriously injured by the shrapnel from the blast, and she had to undergo surgery to save them as soon as she arrived at the hospital. The Times reports that despite the danger to herself, she urged paramedics at the scene to help others who were injured before they helped her.


Not only have her tweets gone viral, but she’s been praised for her optimism and bravery, too. Here’s her story:

Today, she was supposed to take part in a charity run to raise money for Cancer Research UK, but was unable to attend:
