Will miss you forever,rest in peace.
Stayed up all night crying after this happened, and I never even met her. Rip
wow sad you should see CAPS
Condolences to Weiwei’s family.
Suicide is not only bad for the health, but often illegal.
If you feel suicidal, please contact an attorney right away to know your legal rights.
Really they arent going through with it because its illegal? Isnt that only an issue if you dont complete the action. there are so many better reasons not to commit suicide.
If this is a joke it’s not funny. Very uncalled for.
So very, very sad.
This is not the first Asian international student to do this in the last couple years more money needs to be allocate to helping international students especially those with a higher suicide rate than the average student if we want to keep collecting international prices for coming here
As a parent, my heart goes out to her parents. My child also goes to ucsb and I don’t want to even have to imagine getting a phone call with this news. Please take care of one another and value each other. Choose love instead of hatred.
