10th gradeTeen, Akilah Johnson, of Washington, DC wins the Doodle4Goggle contest with her amazing art entitled “My Afrocentric Life”. The theme for the contest was “What makes me…me?” In a Google Blog this week, Akilah answers that question.
When I was younger, I attended Roots Public Charter School and Roots Activity Learning Center in Northwest Washington, D.C. These schools promote a strong connection to African heritage, and an Afrocentric lifestyle; we regularly celebrated important African American people and I learned a lot about my history as an African American. As I grew older, I realized that the black people that came before us have made us into what we are today. So of course I had to include them in my doodle on the theme “What makes me…me.”
