I'm your host Dana Blair and it's now time for our Black Girl Magic moment of the week. And is there any question who this week's salute goes to? Of course, it's our very new Miss USA Miss DeShawna Barber, who not only won the crown but also has quite the resume. At just 26 years old she is a first lieutenant in the US army Army and also works full time as an IT analyst for the Department of Commerce. The new Ms. USA says she hopes to use her position to help veterans. Congratulations Deshauna. Remember you can watch Essence's original Black Girl Magic documentaries at
