Divine Journeys: How The Dynamic Deltas Remind Us To Push Forward

Divine Journeys: How The Dynamic Deltas Remind Us To Push Forward
Posted By: Sofía Montiel on December 01, 2022

From their OKAY Hyundai campaign to this summer’s A Grand Time honoring elders in the community, Hyundai is no stranger to partnering with companies to shine a light on inspirational stories within the African-American community. Whatever the journey, they understand its importance.

This time, they teamed up with Because of Them We Can and some of the dynamic women of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. to remind us to keep moving forward in their latest video entitled “A Divine Journey.”


Fashion and beauty expert Kahlana Barfield Brown, news anchor Megan Rivers, and Social Impact Strategist Alencia Johnson came together to discuss their own journeys as members of the Divine 9. They shared with us how being a Delta has helped launch their life paths and made it possible for them to live their dreams while paving the way for the future.

'I was literally raised around women of Delta Sigma Theta. As a child, my grandmother had sorority meetings at her house. My grandmother’s best friend and someone who was like an aunt to me was Soror Mona Humphries Bailey. Dynamic women who carried themselves with beauty and style and grace. They were the women that did the work…Everything that I do, I feel like I’m standing on the shoulders of our 22 founders,” said Barfield Brown in the video.

“I find myself in rooms with powerful women all the time, and majority of them tend to be Delta women. We have this expectation of one another to be excellent.



And I think I live my life centered in sisterhood, scholarship, and service. That core foundation of social justice and change is literally rooted in everything that I do,” added Johnson.

Rivers echoed those sentiments, saying the experience of being a Delta on an HBCU campus was “like no other.” She paid homage to other Deltas who helped her in her career along the way while also speaking to that same mission of service.

“When I think about my Divine Journey, I use this phrase all the time, ‘that trials are not absent from life, but God is still so very good.’ The journey may not always be easy, it may not always be smooth, but you just gotta keep going. That’s been my journey, just to keep moving. Never stay still, never stay stagnant,” said Rivers.

On Hyundai’s site, the company issued a statement about the importance of highlighting the journey, writing, “Everyone is on their own journey. Ours is to build cars that make those journeys possible…These are those stories of the journeys we build for, the journeys we fight for, and the ones who make Hyundai the place we’re proud to call home.”
