Great potential to provide support for the focused end-user group! The design choices definitely make the user feel welcome, and offer a lot of easy-to-use and accessible features that can help teen moms. It would be really great to see more connections to external resources and some discussion with scenarios showing how users may access and use each of the helpful features you came up with. A truly unique idea - with the potential to help many people. Well done!

I think this is an incredible idea, I'd like to see where this goes and will have a ton of social impact on new teen parents. I would like to see more on user experience, app workflow, and what other self-sustaining resources will empower teen parents.
I design and maintain puzzles and props for fun Escape Rooms!
I am a freelance Character Design and Comic Artist born and raised in the Bronx, NYC. After getting my A.S. in Media and Digital Film Production from Bronx Community College, I have been inspired by film and media to design and draw fun projects with a focus on visual storytelling!
I am heavily inspired by pop culture and the insane combined fantasy imagination of me and my friends who run an online ttrpg gaming community, The Purple Academy. I am one of their artist, producing Illustrations for various Dungeons and Dragons campaigns and adapting our main campaign into a web comic!
I also use all the skills I learned in Mouse Design League to help build and fix fun puzzles with Nerd Escape Room! Our escape rooms are packed with Arduino's and Raspberry Pi's galore which (when paired inside fun crafty props and secret rooms) provide hours of fun for players as they solve our hands-on mystery themed puzzle rooms!

What a great idea! I love that you incorporated many different things a young parent would need to know AND need to have when raising a child! Also, having a crowd funding resource for a Teen parent in need is very original and could help so many young moms! It would be great to see some local resources on the app, perhaps health locations users can go, or even other local places providing free resources for young parents!
