You will make a Flowgram answering these questions about the woman:

1) Who was she and what did she do?

2) Why did you pick her?

In the same Flowgram, please pick a woman who you know personally (your grandmother, mother, a teacher, etc.) who reminds you of the famous woman you picked to write about.  Explain why she reminds you of that famous person.
