ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - An Albuquerque woman has invented a product that reminds parents that they have a child in the car.
"If the baby is in the seat and the cell phone is too far away then the alarm on the phone will sound," said Hot Seat inventor, Alissa Chavez.
Chavez's invention, Hot Seat, has been a huge hit. And now she has the attention of T-Mobile. She's been asked to speak in support of the T-Mobile/Sprint merger, which could launch a brand new high-speed 5G network.
"When this opportunity came up, I was willing and happy to support T-Mobile in any way to give back the support they've given me," said Chavez.
Chavez says she hopes her Albuquerque-based company will be one of the first to use the network.
"I think that this new 5G network is going to be beneficial for all 5G companies - including my own," said Chavez.
Chavez says she encourages other young people to pursue their dreams.
"I would definitely tell any young person out there with a dream or a goal 'just go for it,' don't be afraid of failing and don't be afraid of what others are going to say," said Chavez.
