My Hometown: Wixom, Michigan

YJI's "My Hometown" series continues with a thoughtful piece from Monica Blaze, our new student from Wixom, Michigan, making her YJI debut with a piece she named, "I'll Take You To Wixom." The winter photo below is by Colin Cuming, another Wixom teen, and used with permission.

 -- My hometown --
 I'll take you to Wixom ...
By Monica Blaze
WIXOM, Michigan, U.S.A. – A small city, often missed in the blink of an eye – or at least misinterpreted – is where I live.
Everyone knows everyone here. As the year progresses, everyone figures out they know more people than even they thought they did.
I’ll take you through a year of my city, and by the end, you will know everyone who lives in Wixom.
