Miss South Africa, Zozibini
At Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta,
Before she was crowned Miss Universe on Sunday night Zozibini Tunzi the 2019 Miss Universe said: “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,”
“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.”
Steve Harvey was the host of the pageant for the fifth time sporting a bedazzled green and gold suit jacket.
He was commenting on a costume from earlier in week and said Miss Philippines won the National Costume Contest. But the woman standing next to him said she was Miss Malaysia.”Y’all got to quit doing this to me,” he said.
