“In pageantry, there are the stereotypes that women are airheads or that they’re not educated,” Barber, a military officer, tells PEOPLE. “By winning the Miss USA pageant, I was really able to show that a lot of women have so many backgrounds. We’re all so very unique and diverse so I’m so excited that I’m able to represent that, especially as a woman in the military.”

Deshauna Barber is the first military member to be crowned Miss USA. She joins Tanya Rivero to discuss her historic win, her work in the military and what’s next for her. Watch below:
