This is Margarita Barry. In addition to being a really great web-designer, she is also the woman behind I Am Young Detroit  - a weekly blog that highlights people younger than 40 who are having a positive impact on the city.

I'm happy to say that I was featuring in IAYD a couple of weeks back.

I admire what Margarita is doing. There are a lot of place on the web that itemize the things and people  and events that are wrong with the city.  It's good to have something like IYAD serve as a counterpoint and as an ever-expanding aggregate of this city's progressively-minded people.

Since Margarita can't very well feature herself on I Am Young Detroit, I figured I would do the next best thing and include her in The People of Detroit.

Be sure to check out  her project and the people profiled there-in.

LOL @Tafari I am going to do a profile on myself. My photo's caption will read "Who Gon' Check Me Boo?" In all caps..just for you...and of course I will be rocking She by Sheree.

Thanks so much Noah and everyone else for checking out my blog! It is really an honor to featured in your project Noah, and thanks for mentioning IAYD.

As always I'm a fan, keep doing what you do!
