South Africa could not be more prouder after its very own Miss South Africa is crowned  Miss Universe 2019.

Zozibini Tunzi was crowned Miss Universe 2019 last night at the Tyler Perry Studios in the United States of America, Atlanta. The 26-year-old made her mark when she was crowned Miss South Africa 2019 earlier this year, and now she has done it again even better.

The Miss Universe pageant had women from 89 other countries and they were all making a mark on that stage. Tunzi answered questions given to her with so much confidence and as a true leader.

Having her natural beauty intact, Tunzi walks in the footsteps of Margaret Gardiner who was crowned Miss Universe in 1978, followed by Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters in 2017.

She was asked what she thinks is the most important things to be teaching your girls and she gave the response:

“I think the most important thing we should be teaching young girls today is leadership. It is something that has been lacking in young girls and women for a long time. Not because we don’t want to, but because of what society has labeled women to be. I think we are the most powerful beings in the world and that we should be given every opportunity. That is what we should be teaching these young girls. To take up space. Nothing is as important as taking up space in society and cementing yourself.”
