Catch what some fans had to say below and again, congratulations, Zozibini Tunzi! You've truly fulfilled your powerful message.

“It’s something that has been lacking in young girls and women for a very long time—not because we don’t want to, but because of what society has labeled women to be. I think we are the most powerful beings [in] the world, and that we should be given every opportunity, and that is what we should be teaching these young girls: to take up space. Nothing [is] as important as taking up space in society, and cementing yourself.”
