Alexandra Clark is living life as not only a successful business owner in the city of Hamtramck, but as a media darling.

The pixie-haired chocolatier has been profiled in the pages of Metro Times many times and was recently named to Forbes' 30 under 30 list, which gave the 27-year-old's business a national platform.

The media attention isn't slowing down. Midwest Living, a regional lifestyle magazine, recently profiled Clark, making note of her Motor City-inspired aesthetics and hands-on approach to making classic confections.

We're down for anyone giving Detroit businesses the spotlight, especially when they have the foresight to not call our town a "blank slate" or imply that a chocolate company is saving the city.

So, what's the take-away from all this? Life really is like a box of chocolates. You never know what media outlet is gonna cover you next.
