Anika attended Goza Middle School. She joined the track team and was well known for her strength and speed. Before high school, Anika returned to Milwaukee. While living in Milwaukee, she explored who she was an an artist through song, dance, poetry, and more. She was no stranger to hard work and dedication, providing a full life for her children. She enjoyed the sound of soul, rap, and country music. Some of Anika’s favorite artist were India Arie and Jaheim.

Anika didn’t run from a challenge. She was a serious debater and would do anything to prove her point. She would try her luck with different ventures, but also enjoyed the simple things in life. Her children and grandchildren were her world!
