A teenager's relationship with her mother became the inspiration behind an artwork that is now featured on Google.com and Chrome.

Sophie Araque-Liu, 16, from Florida, was declared the winner of Doodle for Google 2022, an annual contest in which students from across the U.S. participate by sending their own Google Doodle renditions based on the given theme, according to HITC.

Following several rounds of judging and public voting, Google announced Tuesday that Araque-Liu emerged as the winner of the competition.

As part of an effort to help students reflect on their mental health and well-being, the theme for this year's contest was "I care for myself by..."

Araque-Liu's quote on Google.com read: "I care for myself by accepting others' care for me. Often I struggle to shoulder a burden on my own, and forget that I have so many people, like my mom, who care about me and want to help me. Opening up and letting others support me not only relieves my stress — it lets me tackle things I could never do on my own."

The high schooler's entry, which bested thousands of other entries, is titled "Not Alone." It captures herself hugging her mother.

When Araque-Liu found herself lonely and isolated during the pandemic, she reached out to her mother and received the comfort and support she needed to get through the tough period.

"Sophie hopes her Doodle will remind people that they are not alone, even in the toughest of times," Google.com noted in the announcement.

The Martin County High School junior had reportedly submitted her artworks three times for the annual contest. This year was the first time her entry was selected as Florida's nominee before she emerged as the national winner.

The contest entries submitted by students were reviewed by a panel of judges, which included Selena Gomez and the 2021's Teacher of the Year, Juliana Urtubey. The panel shortlisted entries down to one winner from each U.S. state and territory.

The selected entries were then put up for public voting before the judges made their final decision, 9to5Google reported.

Sophie bagged a $30,000 college scholarship for being the winner. Meanwhile, her school will receive a technology package amounting to $50,000.

"I'm not used to all the attention. But I'm so happy and so excited," Araque-Liu told TC Palm in May after she won Florida's nomination.

"As I've been growing up, I've been realizing how much my parents do for me, and I've wanted to focus on that a lot more in my art," the teenager said further. "And focus on giving back to them in any way I can."
