Miss District of Columbia Deshauna Barber emerges as Miss Usa 2016 last night at the t mobile arena in Las-Vegas . The new queen wowed the judges with her intelligence, beauty and talents .The newly crowned Miss USA is a 26-year-old Army officer from the District of Columbia who gave perhaps the strongest answer of the night when asked about women in combat.This is what she had to say ..

“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 shared with the judges and the entire audience. “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 Army.”


Final three ladies Miss Columbia ,Miss Hawaii and Miss Georgia had to define what “confidently beautiful” meant to them .This was what  Deshauna Barber had to say ..

“To me confidently beautiful means understanding that it’s not always about your appearance. It’s not always about who you’re around and how they feel you look, where they feel you come from or your economic background,” Deshauna explained. “Serving in the military has taught me that being confidently beautiful is about being able to earn respect from people regardless of what you look like. As a woman in the military, people associate beauty with weakness and they learn very quickly that I’m extremely strong. And although I’m small, I’m powerful and confidently beautiful is being myself and being very happy with who I’ve become. Thank you.”

Soon after, another five were eliminated allowing only 10 ladies to show off their evening gowns. The list then dwindled to five people who were faced with tough questions from judges including Nigel Barker, Ali Landry, Joe Zee.


Ultimately, it was Miss District of Columbia who deserved the official title of Miss USA 2016. 

Congratulations to all the contestants for another beautiful evening.
