The iconic photograph emerged back in 2004 when Zoe's father Dave Roth captured her watching firefighters trying to put out a fire two blocks from their home in Mebane, North Carolina. In November 2007, Dave entered and won a contest for a not-so-famous photo magazine. But after the photo was published ... Since then, Zoya's photo has become very often used for various photojams and demotivators.
