South Africa's Zozibini Tunzi was crowned Miss Universe Sunday night after excelling through rounds of swimsuit and evening gown struts, questions on social issues and one final chance to explain why she was the right choice.

"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," she said in her last response. "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."

 Tunzi is 26 years old and hails from Tsolo, South Africa. Tunzi is an active advocate against gender-based violence. 

The two runners-up for the crown were Miss Mexico and Miss Puerto Rico.
