PSU Student Trends After Death

It was Garbriella Sicard’s dream to be a worldwide trend on Twitter, according to friends of the late Penn State student, who died on Wednesday at age 19 after a car crash. By early Friday morning, #FlyHighGaby was the No. 1 global trend. Sicard’s friends started tweeting the hashtag in her honor on Thursday to celebrities like Snooki and Taylor Swift, and the trend immediately went viral in the U.S. and then around the world. Sicard, who died in the hospital following the crash, was a liberal-arts major and played club lacrosse at Penn State.
