Roxanne Ashley | 3RY Magazine Associate Editor
Three Reasons Why Magazine is celebrating our one-year anniversary, Sunday March 27th, at The Blue Finn! The team here at 3RY could have never imagined the impact that this publication has inspired. It has been my great personal and professional pleasure to write engaging, accurate and important stories every month for you, our appreciated audience.
Health, fashion, business, politics, music and some of the most influential individuals “The Mitten” has produced. We’ve covered the Coronavirus pandemic from its start, this passed historical presidential election and so much more. It has been the goal of this publication to offer quality content and we have been overjoyed by the response of our readers. We are honored to have over 100k likes, comments, shares, and collective subscribers. The 3RY Magazine Anniversary Brunch is around the corner. Celebrating this one-year milestone with the people who have been pertinent in its success. The engineers, the cover-stories, featured articles, sponsors, graphics designers, journalists and of course, our readers. The 3RY Anniversary Brunch is free to attend, but you must RSVP!
This year has been one of innovation and change for the entire world. We are proud to be apart history. We are grateful to be allowed to grow in such a trying time. As a journalist for this publication, I can say from experience that the work and long hours that go into the functionality of building an integral thought-provoking magazine is true grunt work. Providing facts, while also making sure the balance of fun and entertainment is present. We aim to continue to our journey as a rising publication and valid news source. We are thankful and powered up to have another year of growth and success.
I would like to say a personal thank you to our Editor and Chief Dave Bishop. Whom in my opinion is to be admired for his ability to inflict positive change, passion within community, and be a patriarchal template that should be followed. I will forever be indebted, the wisdom you dispense is invaluable. Your contributions are truly priceless to this publication, the city of Detroit, and the daughters and sons of the future. Like me. There are truly no words to express my gratitude.
I am a better writer, more informed woman, and overall enhanced human being because of the opportunity to participate in this groundbreaking publication. I truly hope those that have had the opportunity to read 3RY Magazine share those sentiments. From covering the phenomenal Dej Loaf and her new album, to the influential likes of Christopher Kyle and Plugged in Will, fashion gurus and phenomenal women Latrice Delgado-Macon and Scarlett Monroe, Community activist Zeek of New Era Detroit and full coverage of the dynamic 2020 Detroit Choice Awards. 3RY has and will continue to tell compelling stories, honest stories, our stories.
Be sure to RSVP now for the 3RY Anniversary Brunch Sunday March 27th from 2pm-6pm at The Blue Finn Bar & Grill.
Thank you for allowing 3 Reasons Why Magazine to tell a different story.
