That's awesome, Emily!

It's weird that Droid Sans looks so bad at regular sizes... It looks much
better if you scale it down (which makes sense I guess since it's for
Android and all). With regular sizes Cantarell looks much better.

I tried it out in a few documents and at smaller sizes Cantarell still looks

I know very little about fonts but I'd say go with Cantarell - especially
since it's made using FOSS and it isn't used as widely as Droid Sans.
