Weaving Community: Meet the Shetroit Blog Team!

Meet the Shetroit Blog Team!

Detroit is in the spotlight with many eyes focused on it, wondering what it’s like to live, work and play in this richly complicated, intriguing and culturally diverse soup of a city – with all its offerings, both the challenges and the victories.

Shetroit’s bloggers are presenting a diverse showcase of women’s voices talking about their lives in Detroit. With honesty and authenticity they will regularly be sharing their experiences about this city through their unique lens.

As the primary caregivers, women manage their families and are the keepers of our society’s values; women are the nurturers and the peacemakers. We hope that the stories our bloggers share about these things will inspire you to visit Shetroit.com frequently.

We look forward to growing our blog team as well as the opportunity to hear from other woman as guest bloggers.
If you have an interest in contributing your voice please review our writers guidelines and if they resonant for you, contact us.
