You know when you go on Google and you see "Google" in a fun design? Well, it turns out that a Georgia teen, Arantza Pena Popo, won! Popo, of Lithonia, Georgia, returned her mother's devotion with a soulful Doodle that shows her and her mother in front of a portrait of the pair at much younger ages. In her words, the Doodle depicts "a framed picture of my mother carrying me as a baby (a real picture in my house) and below the picture is me, caring for her when she's older in the future."
"I came up with the idea at the last minute, actually the day of the deadline," she said. "I looked at the photograph of my mother (the real version that inspired the drawing) and thought, 'Hey, why don't I reverse it?' I wanted to focus more on a message of helping out my awesome mother more than anything else."
Popo's Doodle will be displayed on Google.com for one day, and she'll get a $30,000 college scholarship and a trip to Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California. Popo, who was valedictorian of Arabia Mountain High School in DeKalb County, Georgia, says her interests lie in literature and learning more about herself.
