Nohemi Gonzalez


Nohemi Gonzalez was murdered in the 2015 massacres in Paris.

The only daughter of an immigrant mother, Nohemi pursued her studies in industrial design, worked as a teaching assistant and shop technician, and held a job at an Armani Exchange. Her professor called her “an absolute delight.”

Reading about Ms. Gonzalez introduced our 6th graders to one of higher education’s best features, the opportunity to study abroad.

After reading this lovely profile, students shared where they’d like to go: Spain and France ranked high, as did Ireland; other destinations included Hong Kong, the Dominican Republic, and Greece.

Most of the obituaries we read each week are not heartbreaking; this one was. Rest in peace, Nohemi. May your life be an inspiration.
