"If You're Going to do Something, Do Your Best"

story & photographs by Lillie Cummings

That is Norma Carmines's mantra—Do Your Best! This is a four-part series on Norma Carmines,  a resident of the Arbors in Newport News. The series takes you through different facets of understanding Norma: through an introduction, about her person mantra, her most important job, and her life today. It was truly an honor to work with Norma and I hope you enjoy the series.
