She hoped that the students saw their future in her as she saw her past in them. Miss Tunzi believes that this is an exciting time in the students' lives, where they will be challenged and tested, but she encourages them that it will all be worth it in the end.

Education is a powerful tool that can transform individuals and communities. It provides knowledge, skills, and opportunities that can help young people achieve their dreams and make a positive impact in the world. 

Zozibini Tunzi is a strong advocate for education, and during her reign as Miss Universe, she has taken several opportunities to inspire and encourage young people to pursue their education goals. One of the ways that she has done this is through her university tours in South Africa.

In one of her previous speeches, Miss Tunzi stated, "Education is the most powerful weapon that we can use to change the world." She went on to explain that education is not just about obtaining a degree or a certificate, but it is about acquiring knowledge and skills that can be used to make a positive impact in the world. 

Miss Tunzi further encouraged young people to pursue their education goals, even in the face of challenges, because the rewards are immeasurable.

Miss Tunzi's commitment to education is not just limited to her speeches. She has also taken practical steps to support education in South Africa. For example, during her university tour in 2019, she visited several universities in the country to inspire and encourage students to pursue their education goals. 

She also spoke about the challenges that young people face in accessing education, particularly in rural areas, and called on stakeholders to work together to address these challenges.

Miss Tunzi's university tour was a great success, and she had the opportunity to engage with thousands of young people across South Africa. During her visits to the universities, she shared her personal story, talked about the importance of education, and encouraged students to pursue their dreams.

Her message resonated with the students, who saw her as a role model and an inspiration.

In one of her Instagram posts during the university tour, Miss Tunzi wrote, "Education is not a luxury, it is a necessity. It is the key to unlocking your full potential and creating a better future for yourself and your community." She encouraged students to take advantage of the opportunities that education provides, and to work hard to achieve their goals.

Miss Tunzi's second stop was at the University of the Witwatersrand (WITS) for the remainder of their first-year orientation. She believes that engaging with first-year students is crucial as this is a pivotal time in their lives where they will learn to fail and succeed.
