Miss District of Columbia, Deshauna Barber, has been crowned Miss USA 2016!
Deshauna is a 26-year-old Army Officer who had to answer one of the hardest questions of the night, about women in combat. This is what she said:
“As a woman in the United States Army, I think … we are just as tough as men. As a commander of my unit, I’m powerful, I am dedicated,” she said. “Gender does not limit us in the United States.”
Deshauna will go on to compete in the Miss Universe contest.
