Tell your teenager to download Greg haha. The leaves look pretty crispy, so it's probably under watered. It looks like there's a nursery pot the plant is sitting in. I recommend you take it out and give the plant a good soak, especially if the soil is really dry and becomes hydrophobic, you want to make sure the roots are deeply watered and drained away. Then put it back, find a good spot with bright light and hope for the best. Good luck!
I love the little pot and sorry your plant died. I have a small leaf wondering plant in a pot a bit similar and I find the drainage isn’t very good so I filled the bottom with little stones. 😊πŸͺ΄βœŒπŸΌ
Do you know if it was underwatered or overwatered?

That was probably a stupid question. My teenagers forget to water.

I'm worried that the roots may have been dry too long. Water it and wait. Get it in a humid spot or give it a pebble tray to help regulate the humidity.
@sarahsalith I’ve watered it myself because I know she won’t… I think is because she put it on her window and it was too hot. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I watered it and moved to another place, it seems like there is one stem alive. Let’s see. 🀞🏻
@cpessoa I'm rooting for you!! πŸͺ΄
@Kanteen thank You! I watered last night but I will give it a good soak today. 🀞🏻
I think she’s slowly coming back.
