- An aspiring model who wants to be like Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi was caught on camera strutting her stuff

- A fashion designer offered to help by sponsoring a dress for the nine-year-old to audition in
Zozibini Tunzi is an inspiration to many women, not only in South Africa but across the world. People are often called inspirational but we don't always see the effect they have on people.
The Miss Universe star called on young women to “Take up space in society".
"I hope I have inspired people, even if just one person to be themselves at all times and to never compromise their identities, and to insert themselves in spaces where they feel that people like them do not belong. Because the truth is, we do belong and in the words of the actress Lupita Nyong’o ‘Your dreams are valid’," said Tunzi during her Miss SA crowning.
A young girl took her advice and posted a video on social media. The nine-year-old is an aspiring model and she wants to be like her hero, Zozi.
Zozi was taken with the girl's attitude and confidence.
"That sarong throw! That walk! That hair! That skin! That smile! That confidence! Who is this Queen that's coming for my everything?"
The tweet went viral and it wasn't long before a fashion designer offered to help. Sinazo Majambe, a freelance designer, made the generous offer to sponsor the girl a dress she could use for auditions.
The young girl's aunt, @ZiziFunani, who posted the video, was blown away:
"Omg that would be wonderful, I will sure follow you and update you about what happens from now onwards, thank you".
Other social media users were quick to support the young girl and heap praise on Zozi.
@LindoSanda: I love the confidence.
@BonoloMogotsi: Her walk is gold. That smile. Umuhle!!!
@ZiziFunani: She does have a perfect smile honestly.
@mayizukiswe_m: First of, she's so beautiful, and also, when she threw that thingy and that walk, haibo.
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Zozi reacted to an adorable little lady who asked her dad to give her a Miss Universe level hairstyle and the incident was caught on camera, documenting the failed attempt in all its glory.
