Ypsi Immigration Interviews

As someone who left Ypsilanti twice, and, in both instances, ended up moving back, I’m always interested to find out why it is that people choose to make their homes in our community. What follow are links to all of the Ypsi Immigration Interviews that I’ve conducted over the course of the past several years. My hope is that you find them of interest, especially if you yourself happen to be contemplating a move here.

I’m sure I missed some folks, but these were the first to come to mind. If you’re aware of anyone that I’ve spoken with who has been left off the list, let me know, and I’ll add them. And do let me know if there’s anyone interesting who has moved to Ypsilanti in the past year or so who you feel as though I should speak with.
