It’s not every day that someone sees their drawing featured on Google, but for 15-year-old Sarah Harrison, that day came on March 31.
According to Teen Vogue, the Connecticut student entered a Google Doodle competition that asked students to submit their vision for the future; called A Peaceful Future, Harrison’s entry “depicts people of different identities smiling with their arms around one another,” which graced the Google search page last Friday. But that’s not all she received.
Teen Vogue reports that Harrison’s winning doodle also earned her a college scholarship worth $30,000, as well as the opportunity to work alongside the Google Doodle team in California — not to mention a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant is awarded her Connecticut school as a result of her talents.
But for Harrison, the opportunity was all about promoting a future with less hate and more love.
“My future is a world where we can all learn to love each other despite our religion, gender, race, ethnicity, or sexuality,” Harrison shared in a statement on Google’s website, according to Teen Vogue. “I dream of a future where everyone is safe and accepted wherever they go, whoever they are.”
