Joanna Dueweke - The Awesome Mitten
: Detroit

Michigan is a love affair that will never get old. I grew up in beautiful Traverse City, went to college and lived in East Lansing and Lansing, and I am now falling head over heels for Detroit. I never thought I could adore any place more than Northern Michigan, but Detroit is taking up a big place in my heart.

It is my belief that life is too short for bad coffee, lousy wine, and poorly crafted beer. This means, Michigan is the perfect place for me with its wildly passionate artisans of quality and innovative libations. Michiganders are some of the luckiest folks to be in the midst of such talented individuals right in our own communities. We have some pretty awesome neighbors.

I spend my time working on uplifting the voices of small businesses in Detroit and Southeast Michigan and studying Library and Information Science at Wayne State University. For fun, I am exploring Detroit, sailing on Lake St. Clair, and planning my next trip up north.

 

I was raised in vacation-land, Traverse City, where I was one of the lucky ones to enjoy the beach in the summer and snowboard through the winters. Then, I went to college and lived in East Lansing and Lansing, where I learned about sports and getting things done. Now I'm quite honestly falling head over heels for Detroit. I solemnly believe that life is too short for bad coffee, yucky wine, and poorly crafted beer. This means that Michigan is the perfect place for me! My spare time is spent reading or exploring the outdoors. E-mail me: joanna@awesomemitten.com.
