Berkeley Principal Dr. Phyllis Curtis-Tweed previously said, “Dennikia was a teenager, who was navigating the challenges of being a teenager with a positive sense of self and self-worth. She was smart, vivacious, and full of vitality. She was a beautiful young lady both inside and out.

“She was a keen dancer and channeled great passion into her craft. She was on her way to becoming one of the great ones. Her dance teacher describes her as having a huge presence in the dance programme.

“She was one who was happy to organize events and her enthusiasm was contagious. She could energize her peers and they loved her. She gave 100% whether dancing, sprinting or being a diligent student.

“Dennikia had friends across all year levels, in some part, because of her enthusiasm for and participation in dance and sports, but in large part, because of her personality.

“She simply had an engaging and outgoing personality. She was so giving of herself. She volunteered at school on Saturdays and during lunch to assist in tutoring her peers. She knew how to be a friend. She would support her friends whenever she thought necessary and they in turn stood by her in times of need.”
