Watch: The final word by Zozibini Tunzi that won her the crown of Miss Universe 2019
In the final question-answer round, Tunzi was asked the most important thing she should be teaching the young girls today.
The title of Miss Universe 2019 has gone to South Africa's Zozibini Tunzi and a clipping of her final word that helped her win the crown has now gone viral on social media.
In the final question-answer round, Tunzi was asked, "What is the most important thing you should be teaching young girls today?" Without even batting an eyelid, a confidant Tunzi said that it is the leadership that we ought to teach young girls. She further stressed that women are the most powerful beings in the world and should be taught to take up space in society and cement themselves.
"I think the most important thing we should be teaching young girls today is leadership. It's something that has been lacking in young girls and women for a very long time. Not because we don't want to but because of what society has labelled women to be. I think we are the most powerful beings in the world and that we should be given every opportunity. And that is what we should be teaching these young girls to take up space. Nothing is as important as taking up space in society and cementing yourself, thank you," said 26-year-old Tunzi.
