A basic tablet will let me video chat with my daughter during the pandemic

I'm an energetic mother of a 2-yo. During the pandemic she is staying with her grandmother; I want to keep teaching her every day via video chat!


I am a 20 year old energetic mother of a 2 year old princess. I love to do make up and hair on other people. On a daily basis i practice different hair styles on my self and cousins. Makeup motivates me to not be afraid to try new ideas and launch yourself. This is why I would like to begin my own makeup and hair styling business for the future of my daughter. However, at the moment due to the Pandemic I am unable to practice my skills. My daughter is currently with her grandmother during this time and I need a tablet for her to be able to communicate with me via video chat.

My long term goals are go to cosmetology school where I can become certified in hair styling and makeup. My short term goals are to create a strong bond with my daughter during this pandemic and ensure she is learning everyday.

I need a tablet for my daughter. Being away from her has not been easy. I want her to continue to learn her numbers, colors and alphabets and be able to see and speak to me everyday.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to communicate with my daughter on a daily basis. I will be able to ensure that my daughter is learning while at home during this pandemic.
