Meet Nyakim Gatweh, a model from Southern Sudan that teaches people not to be afraid of darkness. It decisively destroys the standards of traditional beauty and motivates others to do the same.
The 24-year-old bright model, now living in Minneapolis (Minnesota), is not ashamed of its incredibly black skin. “My chocolate color is elegant. In the end, I represent a nation of soldiers, “- so she signed one of her numerous photos in Instagram, each of which collects more than 10 thousand likes. Under another photo, she describes in detail how a taxi driver suggested that she “bleach” the skin, and her only answer was laugh: “You will not believe what questions are asked to me and how they look at me because of the color of my skin.”
Nyakim is not only an avid supporter of diversity in the fashion industry, but also a loud voice for the rights of black people throughout the world. She was even somehow called “Queen of Darkness”, but she gladly accepted this title. “Black is bold, black is beautiful, black is golden … Do not let American standards destroy your African soul.” Love the skin in which you live, no matter what color or shade!
