Unbelievable! This is definitely a “Made for TV Movie” ending, and “Cinderella” beginning to what has all the makings of a very promising future. Now that she has been crowned “Miss USA 2016,” Deshauna Barber has some serious decisions to make.
Having served as an officer in the U.S. Army for 22 ½ years, I am bursting with immense pride and admiration for Ms. Barber, who is a logistics commander of the 988th Quartermaster Detachment Unit, Fort Meade, Maryland, and an IT Analyst for the U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington DC.
What an incredible young lady Deshauna Barber is. Not only is she black, beautiful, bright and articulate, Deshauna is now an instant celebrity figure and role model for all aspiring young people across the planet.
