This is Cheslie Kryst, the gorgeous young woman that just won Miss USA.
She’s an attorney. She’s Black Excellence. Her win is a BIG win for young Black women who are killing it but invisible in mainstream media.
She represents the women I see everyday at Miss Black USA where 80% are in graduate and professional school. Three of this year’s contestants who will be competing in are also attorneys; two are in law school.
Representation matters. When one sister wins, we all win. This is a huge win for all us.
Oh yeah, and she totally destroyed her on stage question. Mutilated it. Watch it over here.
Yes, that’s all if her natural hair under the crown.
