Adrienne Roberts

Spending the last four years in Ann Arbor, Adrienne Roberts worked as an editor at the University of Michigan’s student newspaper, The Michigan Daily, while she studied communications and Spanish. Although she had grown up in metro Detroit, it wasn’t until she started working in the city after graduation that she developed a deeper appreciation for Detroit. “It’s a fascinating city that’s constantly changing, and an incredibly interesting place to write about,” she says. “I feel lucky to be immersed in Detroit’s culture right now.” In addition to interning at Hour Detroit, Roberts freelances for Traverse Magazine and interns at WDET-FM.

 

Bernadette Ewing

Currently in her final semester at Oakland University, Bernadette Ewing has always had a soft spot for arts, culture, language, and the city of Detroit — particularly gems like the DIA and Michigan Opera Theatre. “Hour Detroit has always been one of my favorite magazines and I’m grateful for the internship and the opportunity to gain experience in the field of journalism,” says the English and French double major. Also a published fiction writer, Ewing is thrilled about the renaissance Detroit is enjoying, and after traveling the world from Paris to Johannesburg, she still thinks it’s the greatest city around. After graduation, she plans to take pre-nursing courses. 

 

Jenny Risher

Photographing the fashion story “Girl’s Best Friend” was “a dream come true,” Jenny Risher says. “I’ve always wanted to combine my love for animals and fashion. Working with animals is a lot like working with children — you just take a lot of pictures and hope for a good one.” Through this series, she says she’s learned to bark and whistle very well. “The reaction in the cat’s or dog’s face is everything,” she says. “Their reaction must be genuine — either they are annoyed, curious, or happy to see a treat before them. Shoes, purses, jewelry, kittens, and puppies — what more could a girl want?” Risher is also the author of Heart Soul Detroit: Conversations on the Motor City.

 

Rebecca Voigt

Rebecca Voigt brought her eye for style to two of this issue’s features, curating both the nature-inspired gift guide and the glittering holiday fashion story. As Hour Detroit’s style editor, she enjoys the opportunity to share gorgeous gowns and gifts with readers “almost as much as I loved being on set with all those adorable cats and dogs.” The Wayne State University graduate has worked as a stylist, writer, and editor. Her work has appeared in local, national, and international publications, including Metro Detroit Bride, La’G, BG, Prim, Cliché, and Hint. She spends her time off-set writing a style blog, paper-cloth.com, and taking daily adventures with her 1-year-old son, Graydon.
