Day 22...we still celebrating and honoring our heritage! #365Black #blackhistorymonth #iotaphitheta #houstoniotas
Day 22 of #BlackHistoryMonth honoring Black Women and Young Black Girls in rodeo. Today we take you to Texas to showcase a young lady that is a fourth generation cowgirl. Rodeo is part of her destiny. She is very competitive and loves to win. Let us introduce you to DeShauna Loud and here is her story. DeShauna Renea Loud is the 17 year old daughter of Lendol "Brother" Loud and NaTasha Caldwell. She is a 4th generation Cowgirl that knew horses before she knew her name which would lead to her absolute love for them. DeShauna is the only girl out of a total of 5 children between her father and mother so to be tough and rough is a complete understanding. Fresh out of her mother's womb, DeShauna would begin traveling up and down the road with her parents to various rodeos. She then began rodeoing herself at the early age of 3. Her first love was running barrels. As she got older and began competing in various youth rodeo associations, she broadened her scope to include goat tying, pole bending, ribbon roping and breakaway roping. A member of many open rodeo circuits, her fondest memory was making it to the Bill Pickett Rodeo Finals and performing under the lights in Las Vegas, Nevada. What an honor and privilege that was and a memory that will last a lifetime. When she entered the 8th grade her interests shifted a little. Basketball became her priority and the horses/rodeoing were put on the back burner. She went into a rigorous training program and played AAU basketball which aided in earning her a position on her High School's Varsity squad her Freshman year. It wouldn't be long before she found her way back to the arena where her heart always was. After going through 4 different barrel horses within a 2 year period, unable to get her groove back, she traded the barrel saddle and barrel horses in and picked up a rope as well as shifted to Bull Dogging horses. Her focus then, and remains today, is in the Breakaway and Ladies' Steer Undecorating Events. She has done very well for herself in her 14 years of competition winning 8 saddles, numerous buckles, memorabilia and monetary awards.

Black & White photography is what I love to wear and embrace in authentic beauty of feelings. Why not add something is so glamour a bit by bit? I can be dreamy sometimes but not just forever to sit by and dream on. I love music in which is what I glance in for a moment. Move my dreams into music creates me to be so creative in anything. And I am here to work to bring them to be reality. This ideal is likely my vision board that I can make it happen in a long run. 🚶🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️💃🏾 @paparazziaccessories really makes a huge difference in my life through God's plan. I never thought myself would go into to this business. I always wanted to learn how to make my own jewelry. And to this reason, I come to see @earlineblumhagen in the business. I see me in her to every word that speaks out loud. So, I did not want it to be in the wrong place and time, you see? 💃🏾🚶🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️ I was in my own business long ago with Mary Kay Cosmetics and Skin Care. I succeeded to be a star consultant. I enjoyed a lot, believe me. Unfortunately, my dream in Mary Kay was not meant for me to reach to be a director. And, that is alright. It is a part of my life as a journey. No regrets. Then I tried in Avon, and I fell in a wrong path. Cancelled and moved on. 🚶🏾‍♀️💃🏾🏃🏾‍♀️ As the story of my life presses to go fast-forwarding, I received my BA degree in Social Work while contiuning to minister to Deaf women in DIVAS, Walking Thru Bible. This moment succeeds my goals since last year in May! Through my mentor, partner, and sister Earline, Paparazzi Accessories reveals me to so much wonderful ideas. Those great ideas are what I work in a long race. And I am ready to step and dedicate to God as much as I can. 🏃🏾‍♀️🌱🦋 So, no more sitting by the window dreaming for me! I go out there making those great dreams to be reality and alive!💃🏾🦋🌱 ~2018AvaDaisy💋🌼 #paparazziaccessories #independentconsultant #selfadvocate #selfmotivation #wearandembrace #visionboard #livinginpositivity #testimony #deafwoman #DeafBHM2018 #deafministry #payforward #deafadvocate #lovetobecreative #creativewriting #fashionblogger #blogger #blackgirlmagic #blackhistorymonth #blessed

For this #TBT , we honor Dr. William Edward Allen Jr.’s legacy in radiology. In 1935, he became the first African-American certified as an x-ray technician and then set up a residency to help other minorities looking to get in the field of radiology. His research played a key role in shaping radiology and radiation therapy, and he served as the first chairman of the National Medical Association’s radiology section. Dr. Allen also served as surgeon and radiologist for the U.S. Army during World War II. He rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel and became the chief of x-ray service at a military hospital where he trained other medical officers in radiology.
