Callander, a student at Runshaw College in Lancashire, was the first of 22 victimsto be publicly named.
She had just tweeted at Grande the day before the show, SO EXCITED TO SEE U TOMORROW. Her school said in a statement that she died in the attack, which also injured 59 people.
In 2015, Callander shared a backstage photo with Grande at Manchester Arena, the site of Mondays bombing. I hugged her so tight and she said she loved my bow. I cant get over this, I never will, she wrote at the time. Callander is on the left in the photo, below.
