A 23 year old tomboy but still a lady, just trying to write the things I couldn't find in a library.
I'm running out of space in my head, so I've decided to offload some opinions over here.

Elena Cornaro Piscopia: The First Woman to Receive a Ph.D

Elena Cornaro Piscopia The Philosopher:

Elena was born on June 4, 1646, in Venice.  She was a philosopher of noble birth and was often known as Helen Cornaro, an Italian philosopher and academic.  At the age of 7, she was considered a prodigy.

She was tutored in Latin and Greek and became a brilliant musician, mastering the harpsichord, the clavichord, harp, and violin.  At the age of 11, she took a vow of celibacy but never let on to anyone.  Later in her life, she became a Benedictine oblate, dedicating herself to God and God’s service.  She devoted 7 years of her life to charity and working with poor people.

In 1678, she was a Venetian philosopher who became the first woman to receive an academic degree and the first to receive a doctorate in Philosophy.  Elena was considered the most learned woman in Italy when she was only 19.  Sadly, on July 26, 1684, she tragically died at the very young age of 38 from tuberculosis.

As of June 4, the world celebrated her 373rd birthday!

About Her Google Doodle:

Her Google Doodle shows Elena reading with shelves of books behind her.  It seems the letters G, O, G, L, and E are placed on the shelves with the O on the back of her book cover.  This design is acknowledging her academic life.

What The Heck Is A Google Doodle?

You view Google Doodles every day on Google’s main page with artwork from so many different artists.  Originally, in 1998, their search engine founders Larry and Sergey drew the first stick figures behind the second “O”, sending a message they were away from the office for the Burning Man Festival and Google Doodles were born!

Since that time, Google has used Google Doodles to celebrate various moments and viewers have embraced them ever since. The first year included a Turkey for Thanksgiving and 2 Pumpkins using the “O”s for Halloween the following year.

Today, Google has a team of illustrators, graphic designers, animators, and other highly trained artists who help create what you see on different days.

New Years 2019, kicked off a great animation for New Year’s Eve and on February 5, 2019,  the Chinese New Years was celebrated with a hand animation that transformed into a pig (the year of the pig).

On March 21, Google Doodle used AI, for the first time, to pay tribute to Johann Sebastian Bach.

I can’t possibly imagine Google’s home page without these wonderful, catching, and even comical Google Doodles!
