Written by Toni Jones on December 9, 2019
Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa was crowned Miss Universe Sunday night after excelling through rounds of swimsuit and evening gown parades, questions on social matters, and one final chance to explain why she was the right selection.
Tunzi comments, “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.”
Now for the first time ever Miss Universe, Miss USA, Miss America, and Miss Teen USA are all women of color!
