News24 reported that Zozibini said in a statement:

"I am asking men to write love letters to the women of South Africa. Those letters will be inscribed on to ribbons of fabric which will, in turn, form part of my national costume. In what will be a first, I will literally take South Africa with me to Miss Universe; I will wear a wave of love from men in the form of love letters celebrating and honouring the women of this country."

Zozi, as she is fondly referred to by fans, wants men to take responsibility in this beautiful way.

"Women are constantly being taught how to defend themselves against attack from men. I would like to shift the perception. I want to say that responsibility should no longer rest on the shoulders of women alone. I want the men of our nation to stand and take a stand against gender-based violence."

The inspiring young woman's fans are really impressed with her effort:


"A great cause that! UN Women and you will do such amazing work."


"You’re awesome. Such a breath of fresh air. Power, love and light to you always."




"Behind you 100%"


"I love this, can't wait to be one of those who gonna pledge."


"You are a winner already, that crown will be just a bonus. Beautiful campaign."
