Zozibini Tunzi, 26 ans, Sud-africaine, Miss Univers 2019

Thank you Zozibini Tunzi, Miss Universe 2019🙏

Thank you Zozibini Tunzi, Miss Universe 2019🙏  

Thank you Zozibini Tunzi for your outer beauty and the inner one that is guessing to see you. May this strength of character, this self-confidence that is reflected in each of your smiles and words inspire millions of young girls.

As you said, you’d like children to see you, and see their own reflection too. Thank you for saying things so openly and not play it consensual speech because your triumph is not trivial.  

I listened to you just after being elected Miss South Africa. I watched you speak so naturally and proudly about your physique, your natural hair, what you are. From then on, any informed observer would have understood.  

« The tiger does not scream its tigritude, » said Wole Soyinka   Just being here, with your complexion and kinky hair, meant everything. Any observer would have seen from that moment that it was necessary to follow you closely, and that beautiful surprises were coming 😚  

Yes, African girls, especially those with dark complexions, must have models that show them how beautiful their physiques are and yet, that what they will become in life, should not be underpinned in the image society thinks they must have. They must have models that prove to them that they will not have to denature themselves, to deny their color or hair to feel appreciated.  

And I finish with your words on leadership: yes, let’s teach our young people to be leaders. And that starts with nourishing their self-esteem, their self-image.   So again, thank you Zozibini Tunzi🙏 Miss Universe 2019🙏©Minsilizanga.com
