When watching the news lately, I hear all kinds of facts about COVID-19 that I don’t quite understand. What I do understand is that my day to day routine is completely different and so are my interactions with my family and friends. Before COVID-19, I would see my great-grandmother every single day. Since we have had to take precautions with social distancing, I don’t get to see her as she is also elderly and she is very sad about this. For the Start A Smile Challenge, I decided to make signs to place in her front yard with a little note in hopes it will make her smile along with my neighbors. The idea of my invention which I call “Smile Because“ is so I can give a moment of happiness during our crazy days.
