HOW TO BUILD YOURSELF UP, IN A WORLD MADE TO TEAR YOU DOWN

Who Am I

This is actually a complicated question as I believe I am ALOT OF THINGS. But in a nutshell, hi friend *waves* I am Deshauna Barber.  I am a 28 year old Army Reserve Captain, Motivational Speaker and Former Miss USA.  I like to talk, alot.  I am a survivor of child sexual abuse who is here merely to talk about how to overcome obstacles as I have experienced MANY of them.  I lost my mother 3 months after winning Miss USA and somehow I kept it all together.  I have had my heartbroken, I have been bullied, I have overcome incredibly low self esteem and lets just say YA GIRL is  fighter.  This blog is merely a place to use my story as inspiration.  So take a peak and hopefully you will leave this website feeling better than before you arrived. =)
