What Inspired- Helping those with mild cognitive impairment understand 4 AM versus 4 PM with a personalized message when asking for the time. Here are a couple of examples of the need:

What it does- Displays the time in bold text with their first name and morning/afternoon/evening/night background display

How I built it- Using Alexa Developer Console with APL interface

Challenges I ran into- Conversion of 24 time to AM/PM for display, "0" hours or "minutes"

Accomplishments that I'm proud of- Great user feedback including those with NO impairments

What I learned- Displaying the time left before needing to get up is important

What's next for My Clock- add a BOLD date display those those who aren't sure of the date
