Do great things – and take your flowers

Majora Carter, Urban revitalizer
As the youngest of 10 kids, Majora Carter is used to being a little bit invisible, shyly watching the world around her as she draws with her crayons.

Her rallying cry: "You deserve to take your flowers!" Years later, as a grown woman, Majora realizes she can return the favor.
