She is a proud alum and 2004 graduate of The Prairie School, an elite private school founded by Sam and Imogene Johnson.

    Social Impact & Sustainability

    After a transformational experience studying in Kenya and Tanzania, Divinity co-founded the Amagezi Gemaanyi Youth Association (AGYA) in Uganda in 2008 to address issues facing urban youth. Under her leadership, AGYA provided outreach, education, and services to more than 2,000 youth living in urban poverty.

  • Cannabis Advocacy

    Divinity is a vocal advocate for the legalization of cannabis federally. Divinity's mother was a cannabis entrepreneur in the legacy market in the 1990's and was unfortunately the target of a federal DEA raid when Divinity was a young child. Divinity witnessed her mother get arrested for distributing cannabis, a drug that’s now legal for medicinal use in 36 states and recreational use in 15 states.

  • Exodus Edibles

    Divinity's latest venture is Exodus Edibles, a health and wellness brand that manufactures gourmet Southern-style desserts infused with high quality medical grade cannabis and CBD oil. Visit the website and follow Exodus Edibles on TikTok, Twitter, Vimeo and Instagram for updates.

    Divinity's love for baking developed as a child spending time with her mother Barbara, her aunties Bessie and Debra and grandmothers Martha Ann, Ruby Doris and Bianca in the kitchen making decadent sweet treats for soul food Sundays and during the holiday season.
     
    While searching for a solution for stress, insomnia and anxiety, Divinity discovered edibles in 2018 and fell in love. 
     
    Since 2020, she has been researching and experimenting with cannabis cooking and ingesting various types of edibles - from gummies to chocolate bars to herbal teas. She strongly believes in the healing power of cannabis and expects that adult cannabis use will be mainstream in North America 100 years from now. 
     
    Exodus Edibles' flagship product - the Exodus Brownie infused with Premium OG Kush - is a gooey, fudgy brownie full of rich chocolate sourced from pure Jamaican cacao. It will give you that smooth, relaxed, euphoric feeling. 
     
    Perfect for winding down from a long day or getting in the mood for a frisky night with your partner. We work with pharmaceutical chemists, medical cannabis experts, and clinical compound herbalists to perfect the cannabis infusion process and proper dosage of our edibles.
     
    Divinity is a vocal advocate for the legalization of cannabis federally. Divinity's mother was a cannabis entrepreneur in the legacy market in the 1990's and was unfortunately the target of a federal Drug Enforcement Agency raid when Divinity was a young child. The experience traumatized Divinity and catalyzed her activism in the area of decriminalization and destigmatization of cannabis.
