Miss South Africa is Miss Universe 2019

552

South Africa’s Zozibini Tunzi was crowned Miss Universe Sunday, December 8, 2019 which was held at Tyler Perry’s Studios in Atlanta, Ga. She is a passionate activist and engaged in the fight against gender based violence. She has devoted her social media campaign to changing the narrative around gender stereotypes. She is a proud advocate for natural beauty and encourages women to love themselves the way they are.

Tunzi was asked a question on social issues and the last change to explain why she deserves to be Miss Universe. Her response was, “I grew up in a world where a woman who looks like me — with my kind of skin and my kind of hair — was never considered to be beautiful,” she said in her last response. “I think it is time that that stops today. I want children to look at me and see my face and I want them to see their faces reflected in mine.” Watch her speech https://twitter.com/i/status/1203925969913950210 

Miss South Africa / Miss Universe 2019 said, “I came into this competition with my natural hair as a symbol of my firm belief in fair representation. I hope I have inspired people and to insert themselves in spaces where they feel that people like them do not belong.” @zozitunzi
