ZOZIBINI TUNZI 

Zozibini Tunzi was the first black woman from South Africa to win the Miss Universe crown, she won the title on December 8, 2019. She also was the first woman ever to win the title wearing her natural hair, marking a deep shift in beauty standards in the pageant industry and beyond.

 

Zozibini Tunzi is a passionate activist engaged in the fight against

gender-based violence and a supporter of the #HeForShe social media movement, helping to evolve gender stereotypes and bring men into the fight for gender equality. 

 

Tunzi hopes to be an example to young girls to embrace their most authentic selves.

 

She is using her voice as Miss Universe to encourage young women to “take up space” and hopes to bring more voices together to make change across the world. Her message for young women was echoed by everyone from Oprah to Michelle Obama following her crowning. 

 

Before being crowned Miss Universe, Zozibini was working in public relations at a respected global firm.
