Her piece, titled: “Once You Get It, You Give It Back” debuted on the Google’s homepage on Aug 13, 2019 (EST). “In her words, the Doodle depicts “a framed picture of my mother carrying me as a baby (a real picture in my house) and below the picture is me, caring for her when she’s older in the future.”
