Akronite of the Week

Week of May 1: Tressa Watts

SP BIO - Tressa Watts.JPGTressa Watts lives in North Canton and works at Akron General in Downtown Akron. She’s a resident artist at ACoT in Barberton and loves running and fitness.

Tressa says this about Akron: “I love that everything I need is in this city — places to run, parks to enjoy, and great food and beer. I love that I feel like I belong in this weird city.”

Tressa’s favorite thing about Akron is that it’s unique. “What other downtown area has multiple metro parks that make you feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere? I love the acceptance in the art scene and how it’s changing and growing.”
