Daneka’s sports career started at the Barbados Olympic Association as a Sport for Development Officer providing administrative support to promote sport for all. Daneka is currently in Canada pursuing a MA in Sport and Recreation Studies, with a focus on improving social innovation in non-profit sport in developing countries.
The YCM+ Sport Career Fair is a social initiative organised to highlight and promote the diverse careers in sport and physical activity. It uses Barbadian sports professionals to help others understand how to pursue such careers. The event at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre on 18 March 2019 attracted over 300 students of varying education levels and ages. The students engaged with professionals representing 20 sport-focused careers categorised in three main sectors: Sports Management, Sports Sciences and Sports Communication.
