South Sudanese model, Nyakim Gatwech, has been taking the world of social media by storm. More popularly known as “The Queen of The Dark”, this stunning model with her unconventional complexion and looks, is turning the tables on ideal beauty standards.

“Bleach Your Skin”

Loving the skin she was born in, this 24-year old model is composed, intelligent, and bold. She laughed it off when an Uber driver offered her $10,000 to bleach her skin, implying that she should change her skin color. Gatwech encourages other black women to be proud of their skin. She uses her Instagram account to post images of herself and self-loving messages.

Growing Pains

Growing up in South Sudan, The Queen of The Dark was bullied in her childhood for her complexion. People even betted on whether she was wearing stockings or if it were the natural color of her skin. Some people cruelly teased her, taunting her for her skin color and even suggesting she go and take a shower.

Present Day Pursuits

Gatwech now lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota and is a strong proponent of dark skin. She makes sure people around the world are tuned into the message she’s spreading. Apparently, she’s making an impact with each of her Instagram photos garnering an unbelievable 10,000 likes or more.

Black is Beautiful

The Sudanese belle advocates the rights of the black people around the world. She is a strong proponent of diversity in the fashion industry. Gatwech believes that everyone should be proud of their skin color no matter what the “accepted” standards are. She basks in the title of “The Queen of The Dark” and refuses to associate dark with evil or sorrow.
