24 year old South Sudanese model, Nyakim Gatwech, is currently trending.
The model who’s teaching people not to be afraid of the dark with her deeply pigmented skin and fierce determination, is breaking down the barriers of conventional beauty, and encouraging others to do exactly the same.
The 24-year-old burgeoning fashion icon, who now lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has no shame about her melanin, and she makes sure the world is aware.
She captioned one of her many Instagram photos;
“My chocolate is elegant.
So is what I represent… A nation of warriors,”
In another, she details an experience in which an Uber driver suggested she try ‘bleaching’ her skin – and her only response was laughter.
“You won’t believe the kind of questions I get and the kind of looks I get for having this skin.”
According to Bored Panda, Gatwech is not only an advocate for diversity in the fashion industry, but also a voice for Black rights around the world. She’s even been dubbed “Queen of the Dark,” a title she happily accepts.
