15 year old Akilah Johnson is #Doodle4Google’s first ever African-

American contest winner and here’s what she had to say about her artwork: . . ‘I’ve always been encouraged to pursue art, especially by my teachers, but participating in #Doodle4Google gave me an understanding of why art matters and why MY art matters—because it speaks to people. No matter our differences, everyone is touched by art in some way. Winning this competition opened my eyes to the many types of art and the many ways it can resonate with people. I’m excited to keep creating art that matters.” -#AkilahJohnson
