JUAN CARLOS PEREZ AND JOANNA DUEWEKE

Neighborhood: Rosedale Park

How they met: “We met over the phone, in late 2016, talking about a social media workshop I was scheduled to present to ProsperUS Detroit entrepreneurs (which I cancelled last minute, the day of). Since then, we became awkward friends, working on different projects that included language, storytelling, entrepreneurs, and social justice. We've been together, officially, for almost seven months, and we're getting married on April 7, 2018.”
