Raising three children on her own, Anika Klix knew she needed to do more if she wanted them to have more. “After I had my kids, I realized I needed an education to increase my ability to take care of them,” said Anika. “It was time to up my skills and further my education.”
She finished her bachelor’s degree, went on for a master’s, and worked hard on her career, taking on increasing responsibility at the Port of Seattle. But even with that considerable experience, skills, and knowledge, Anika’s “always learning” mindset pushed her to ponder what would be next.
