Meet The “Queen Of The Dark”

in #life7 years ago (edited)

Nyakim Gatwech, the South Sudanese model who’s teaching people not to be afraid of the dark, with her deeply pigmented skin and fierce determination, she’s breaking down the barriers of conventional beauty, and encouraging others to do exactly the same

24-year-old Nyakim Gatwech is making waves in the fashion industry with her sumptuously dark skin

Before the South Sudanese model found success, though, her unique beauty wasn’t celebrated by all

In 2016, an Uber driver suggested she bleach her skin, implying that her deep complexion was nothing to love

She simply responded with laughter, and has fully embraced her striking appearance ever since

“My chocolate is elegant. So is what I represent… A nation of warriors,” she captioned an Instagram photo

Now living in Minneapolis, Nyakim is a voice of encouragement for the Black community

The burgeoning fashion icon has now gone viral, with over 100 thousand followers on Instagram

Though she still receives discouraging messages now and then, she refuses to give up her radiant self-love

She has even been dubbed the “Queen of the Dark,” a title she happily accepts
