my friend izelle shared this on my facebook. the 2nd grader from monte verde elementary, matteo lopez, has won the 2011 Doodle 4 Google competition.

not only his his illustration the first thing you see when you open up google, but he’s won a $15k college scholarship and a $25k tech grant for my old school!

yea… monte verde produces some pretty creative kids eh? *wink wink lmaooo jk jk.

the contest asked kids to answer the question: “What I’d like to do someday” to which matteo answered, “become an astronaut and explore space” awwwww =)

he was one of 40 finalists from an entry of 107,000! congrats matteo!

"Space Life"

when i was his age, my top 5 “when i grew up i want to be’s” were:
– lawyer (took up political science in college… got my degree that lead to a different path as you can see)
– doctor (did the whole pre-med thing in college, lasted a semester lmao)
– broadway singer (particularly the role of kim from miss saigon hahhhaha – realized i was only good in the shower)
– professional dancer (i sucked at choreography, i blame it on short-term memory)
– artist (i’m great at drawing circles…)

what were your aspirations when you were a kid??
