WHAT DOES BEING A DELTA MEAN TO YOU?
Being a Delta means I have an AWESOME responsibility to live a life of public service. I must speak for those whos voices aren't heard. A women who doesn't cower at obstacles.....she conquers them.
Being a Delta means rolling up your sleeves to do the work that may not get done if we don't take the initiative.
Being a Delta means having sisters all over the world, whom share a common interest and dedication to using our time, talents and treasures to make the community.....the WORLD....better. A women of contrasting characteristics; gentle and virtuous yet fierce and stern when necessary.....Keeping her essence when in the trenches and in triumph. Being a Delta means I preserve the history of the Black community, while nurturing our present and making positive deposits for our future.
A Delta woman puts great importance on academics because she understands that education is a valuable tool that can aide one in achieving their goals. Being a Delta means I'm invested in the spiritual, mental, economic and physical health of Women. Being a Delta means that I hold my Sorors in high esteem and that I have comfort in knowing that I can go almost anywhere, and never be alone. Being a Delta is Black Girl Magic; which is part of what inspired me to create a Black cameo jewelry line called the "Abra Collection." Abra comes from the term "abracadabra" thus the line represents Black Girl Magic. The collection was born out of the passion I have for Black representation in industries where there is little to none. I designed and I make each piece by hand. I've always loved the Victorian look of cameo jewelry however 98% of the cameo jewelry available for purchase is of European women; while still beautiful, I felt that Black women needed some representation in the cameo jewelry industry. With that being said, in true Delta form, I set out to be the change I wanted to see. I want Black women to know that there is cameo jewelry that looks like us, our ancestors and the Black woman we love. The Abra Collection is wearable Black art.
