Cape Town - Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi on 1 January kicked off 2020 with a powerful message on her official Twitter account.
"To the year of disrupting toxic status quo! To the year of shaking tables! To the year of being fearless! Happy New Year," the 26-year-old wrote.
"I believe in inclusion and representation in every shape and form," Zozi wrote in an Instagram post on 22 October.
After being crowned Miss South Africa in August 2019 she posted a photo on social media with the caption: "So here sits the crown, beautifully so on my kinky coarse hair. I hope I make South Africa proud."
On the Miss Universe stage in December 2019 she once again left everyone inspired with her powerful answer to the question what the most important thing is to teach girls today.
Zozi, who is only the third South African women ever to wear the Miss Universe crown, is currently living in New York City whilst she performs her official duties. No information has yet been released about when she will be visiting South Africa following her crowning.
