Brownie Power: ‎Deshauna Barber‬ is the new Miss USA!

Say hello to the new Miss USA, Beautie Brownie Deshauna Barber! 26 year old Deshauna, an Army Reserve officer and IT analyst who represented the District Of Columbia, was crowned this past Sunday evening. Barber won the pageant ahead of first runner-up Chelsea Hardin, Miss Hawaii, and second runner-up Emanii Davis, Miss Georgia.
Judges were impressed after mounting a strong defense of women in combat roles in the military. When asked by judge Joe Zee whether the Pentagon's decision to open up all combat roles to women had "put political correctness over our military's ability to perform," 1st Lt. Barber responded:
"As a woman in the United States Army, I think it was an amazing job by our government to allow women to integrate into every branch of the military."

She continued: "We are just as tough as men. As a commander of my unit, I'm powerful, I am dedicated and it is important that we recognize that gender does not limit us in the United States."

Loads of congrats & confetti to the beautiful Deshauna Barber! We are so proud of her and thankful for such a huge representation of what it means to be a Beautie Brownie!
