Deshauna Barber, is the latest beauty to win the coveted Miss USA crown.
The live evening show is notorious for recognizing true beauty inside and out to determine who will get the honor of representing the United States. Miss District of Columbia shined just as bright as the diamonds in her tiara as 2015’s Miss Oklahoma dubbed her the winner.
The 26-year-old army officer delivered an inspiring answer regarding gender equality in the military. Deshauna, who stated “women are just a tough as men,” grabbed the attention of judges and viewers. Enough to make sure she was the last lady standing to take over the title.
Congratulations, Deshauna Barber! Let’s keep the #BlackGirlMagic gleaming.
