Miss Universe 2019 Winner: South Africa’s Zozibini Tunzi Wins [Photos]

South Arica’s Zozibini Tunzi took home the 2019 Miss Universe title at the annual beauty pageant on Sunday, held this year at the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia.

The 26-year-old pageant winner is the first black woman from her country to wear the Miss Universe crown. She works as an activist, and is particularly passionate about fighting gender-based violence. Natural beauty is also important to Tunzi, who believes women should “love themselves the way they are,” according to the Miss Universe website.

After being named the winner, Tunzi pressed her hands together against her head and grinned. She becomes the third South African to win the Miss Universe after Margaret Gardiner in 1978 and Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters in 2017.
