Mamabot explores the various self-identified fears and barriers experienced after becoming a mother. Despite the contemporary lifestyle and technology that seem to assist and empower women to persist in both career and domestic spheres, many obstacles, barriers, and fears still exist. I envisioned a heroic and improved version of myself and created Mamabot to juggle my entire life.  She can handle all the to-do list items, meet all the deadlines, feed home-cooked meals to my kids, pick them up from school on time, and ultimately fulfill all societal and self-imposed expectations.
