Zozobini Tunzi from Zimbabwe was crowned Miss Universe on Sunday night. The two runners up for the crown were Miss Mexico, Sofía Aragón, and Miss Puerto Rico, Madison Anderson.
“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,” told Tunzi to CNN. “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.”
Unfortunately, Lebanon did not participate in this year’s Miss Universe pageant as the Miss Lebanon competition was canceled due to the situation of the country.
