Google has proudly announced that Akilah Johnson, an incredibly talented high school student from Washington, DC, has won the Doodle 4 Google competition.
The Internet’s leading search engine site says they received more than 100,000 submissions for this competition, proving just how great this honor was. The winning doodle was a piece titled “My Afrocentric Life,” which pays respect to Black culture with powerful statements, art and representation.
“I grew up learning a lot about my history as an African American. As I grew older, I realized that the black people that came before us has made us into what we are today, so of course I had to include them in my doodle,” said Johnson, who also happens to be the first African American to win the national competition.
Without further adieu, see the winning doodle below and congratulations to Akilah on this amazing achievement.
