A young girl, a valedictorian of her high school, Arantza Peña Popo, has won the Doodle for Google competition for 2019.
This is the 11th edition of the Doodle for Google competition, each year with a different theme. This year's theme was "When I grow up, I hope..." and Popo titled her Doodle, "Once you get it, give it back." It shows her in the future standing behind her mother. The two are pictured in front of a framed photo of her mother when she was young holding Popo when she was a baby.
The framed photo Popo drew was based on a real picture of her mother holding her sister that is hanging in their house, Newsweek reports.
Speaking with Google on why she created the Doodle, Popo said: "I think it was just a chance to thank her for all she'd done. Sometimes I think of the cost of raising a child all the way to adulthood and since I know I can't instantly pay my mom back hundreds of thousands of dollars, I can least pay her back in a sincere doodle."
Popo’s Doodle beat over 200,000 submissions to be declared the winner of Google's annual Doodle for Google competition.
She was announced as the winner of the competition by TV host Jimmy Fallon during his show, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, on Monday, August 12.
Google users were greeted by Popo’s design when they opened the homepage after the clock struck midnight on the East Coast.
A Nigerian man Bandele Ajetunmobi, popularly known as Tex, who happened to be one of the UK’s first black photographers brought to life through photos he took in the 50s, pictures of the multicultural community of post-war Britain.
