“Everything I have, I’ve done myself – and for my kids”

Jennifer Garcia sits in the corner of her front porch on the 3300 block of South 15th Street, surrounded by family. Garcia spent much of her childhood in St. Francis, a small municipality just south of Bay View, but has seen a lot of Milwaukee, also living in West Allis, on the north and east sides of the city and attending Hamilton High School on the south side. What’s her experience been like? “Diverse,” says Garcia. “Especially, now, having kids, I want them to be diverse so it’s not like they’re just secluded with one race.”
