Dakota was introduced to Jack.org in high school by one of her peers. Right away, she felt a strong connection to the organization’s mission, values, and youth network. She became a Chapter Lead for Dalhousie’s Agricultural Campus in 2020 and completed the Campus Assessment Tool with her co-lead. Dakota is now the Network Rep for Prince Edward Island, lending her voice to the Chapters program design, speaking on behalf of youth in her network, and being an active participant in all the Jack events she can! In the future, Dakota hopes to see more resources available in rural areas and higher assistance to those unable to afford the help they need. Outside of advocacy work, Dakota enjoys spending time with her cats, practicing embroidery and reading mystery novels.
