Detroit holds so many special memories for me, and it is definitely my happy place! I went to college in Detroit, and met so many diverse and incredible people from all walks of life while exploring downtown. From the incredible food to the numerous galleries and venues, it is a city that you could spend days exploring and still not find all of the hidden gems in it. I adore my city and to see it being a place of growth and a thriving source of creativity makes me so grateful to live here and feature it as my happy place.
