Just a few days after her historic win at the 2016 Miss USA pageant, Deshauna Barber is now making her media rounds with stops at some of the top talk shows for sit-down interviews. This morning she sat down with Kelly Ripa and guest co-host James Corden to dish on her win and other tidbits to her success.


During her appearance this morning on LIVE! with Kelly, Deshauna was all smiles and you could see the genuine joy and appreciation in her eyes as she recalled her inspiring when this past Sunday night in Las Vegas.


As expected of most beauty queens, Barber is very articulate and poised at all times. One of the cute highlights of the interview was when she said, “It was awesome that I made it this far, I won! “I was thinking how surreal [it was], I was just so happy to touch the crown on my head and have the sash going across my chest. I couldn’t have been any happier.” She also revealed that she has officially moved to New York City full-time and is currently roommates with Miss Universe, as the two share a spot in Manhattan.


Now that her milestone win as the first Army officer to win the Miss USA pageant is firmly cemented in the history books, the sky is the limit for this beautiful and intelligent young woman. Deshauna Barber, we at Hello Beautiful salute you!
