At 27 years old, Zozibini Tunzi brought glory to South Africa by becoming the sixth black woman in history to win the Miss Universe pageant since it started in 1952. She was crowned Miss Universe 2019 months after being crowned Miss South Africa. It was a historic moment for the African beauty who grew up watching fashion shows and reading fashion magazines setting standards of beauty she never believed she could meet.
A strong-willed woman, Tunzi didn’t quit after getting eliminated at the Miss South Africa pageant in 2017. Instead, she returned to be crowned Miss Universe and shatter beauty stereotypes, lending hope and inspiration to young black women everywhere, a feat that propels her to the People Who Inspire (PWI) Awards 2020’s league of Modern Icons and makes her one of DKODING’s Most Beautiful Women In The World 2020!
