First Native American Miss USA -- Indiana

Unfortunately Mekayla Diehl, Miss Indiana USA 2014 did not make it to the final round of the contest. She is a beautiful young lady who has overcame a lot during her short life. I hope this is the beginning for her and not the end.
If you don't know much about her, it is worth reading her story on-line. The sad thing that you will soon discover if you google her name, in stead of focusing on the good things about her, it seems what the focus has been after the Miss USA contest is the shape of her body.
It's a pity, shameful, and misses the best thing about Mekayla -- her as a human being.
Most Native Americans who reach high levels of success in our society do so after overcoming huge barriers. In reality, this beautiful young lady should have never made it to the contest, much less make it to the next round. She had people in her life that supported her, believed in her and surrounded her with love.
The message should be, regardless where you start, surrounded with honorable people who love you, there are no limits to what you can achieve!
Peace, DAP
