DEADLINE DETROIT -- Although it’s been said many times, many ways, this simple phrase still makes us smile: “Detroit is a beautiful city.” This time, that truism comes from digital marketer Kristin Hope, who drove from San Mateo in Northern California last March and tells in a blog post why she’s glad to be here. “I wanted to be somewhere where it was the hustle — not the pedigree — that mattered. ... “A year later, the honeymoon continues. I’m more convinced than ever that not only was this the right move for me, it could be the right move for a lot of people who are low on funds but big on dreams.” At Automation Alley’s site, the 2009 San Francisco State University graduate lists differences between her former and current regions. She’s a 31-year-old digital ad campaign analyst, copywriter and social media manager at PIXO Group in Royal Oak.
