Danielle Okine

PR OFFICER

Hello, I’m Danielle and I’m the elected PR Officer for DYC 2019-20. I’m passionate about the youth’s voice being heard and have thus worked with many charities such as the YMCA to make this a possibility.

I am looking forward to improve the Dartford Youth Council’s connections with other organisations which can further improve the reach of the opinions of young people.
