This is EXCELLENT!
Yesterday if you’d opened Google you would have seen a Black family in front of a portrait on the home search page. This was the amazing work of 18-year-old Arantza Peña Popo from Lithonia, Ga.
This year’s theme for the Doodle for Google comp was “When I grow up, I hope…”
Of the illustration Popo said:
“At first, I initially wanted you know, like an invention or a career, but I wanted to make it more personal to me, so I decided to make it about my mother,”
Popo said her mother
“lights up any room she is in” and “She’s made so many sacrifices for me, so I kinda wanted to show me paying it back in the future,”
And winning this year’s 11th Annual Doofde for Google competition has come with a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology award for her school.
