South Africa’s Zozibini Tunzi Crowned Miss Universe 2019

South Africa's Zozibini Tunzi was crowned Miss Universe 2019, giving the country its second title in three years.


Tunzi is a 26-year-old gender violence activist. This beautiful Black woman was forced to abandon her studies due to her family's economic difficulties, but modeling allowed her to continue her education. This beautiful Black woman studied public relations at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.

Tunzi said she grew up in a world where women who looked like her were not seen as beautiful. It's hard to imagine such a perspective. Tunzi is absolutely a beautiful and gorgeous Black woman. She said it was time for this to end. The good news is that it is ending. Ideals and expectations that people of African descent have tried to live up to and some still try but only now African people are beginning to value their own natural beauty.
