A student at Lexington Christian Academy needs your help winning a national competition and it comes with a hefty college scholarship. The theme for this year’s annual Doodle for Google competition is “I’m strong because…” Milo Golding, a junior at Lexington Christian Academy immediately knew his answer. It was inspired by his late father. “I remember asking him how he was able to get through life obstacles and becoming who you wanted to be.” Golding said his father answered “Hope. Hope keeps me strong. So that’s really been a motto and a saying that has really empowered me to strengthen my resolve to move forward and constantly gives me hope. Throughout the illustration that I drew, everything, each component revolves around that concept of hope and moving forward and strengthening yourself.”

While others learned to make sourdough bread and do TikTok dances, Toronto resident Kaya Kristina's quarantine activity was to start an eatery — for dogs.

It's called StarPups Café.

Kristina lives next to High Park, a popular park in the Toronto area. Six years ago, she noticed that many dogs returning from a trip to High Park looked tired and thirsty, so she began leaving a bowl of water on the front yard of her house for the thirsty canines.
