Back Story

As a first-generation Caribbean-American, We The People rings clearly to her. Out of Many One Family, the Omphroys are Jamaican, Haitian, and Panamanian. Yes, Anika is the niece of Lauderdale Lakes Mayor Hazelle Rogers, former State Representative of House District 95. She attended Castle Hill Elementary School, located in District 95. Community service is near and dear to Anika’s heart.

As a 7th grader, Anika organized her first call to action against racial injustice VIEW ARTICLE. It gained media attention and created change at her middle school. At Nova high school, she was voted most outspoken by her senior classmates. She graduated from Nova Southeastern University.

At a Census outreach event, she spoke out about youth inclusion, after the event Anika was asked to create a talk show. She executive-produced, cast, and co-hosted “The Mix,” which launched in the fall of 2010 on TeleAmerica Broadcasting Network. The show ran for two seasons and was the most-watched show on the station.

Anika believes that a politician has three roles in a community: servant, voice, and strategist.
