“Queen of the Dark” model proves that beauty is not always based on the skin color

In this world full of criticisms, complexion usually do matters. There are people who would judge you according to your color, but there are still a lot of people who won’t mind whatever color you may have. Typically, if you’re black colored complexion, you are a victim and a subject of bullying.

Just recently, another kind of unique beauty has caught the attention of netizens for her stunning look and color complexion. A woman named Nyakim Gatwech, a South Sudanese model in Minnesota, is now taking the world into her world of unique and flawless skin type complexion, strong and powerful gaze, and steadfast message of empowerment.

The 24-year-old model is on a mission to promote skin positivity and self-acceptance among women with darker hues or skin color. Her photos on Instagram are shared with her nearly 100,o00 followers. Along with her stunning and breathtaking photos are her inspirational messages targeting women who are struggling to be comfortable in their own skin.

Accompanying one of her most popular photos on Instagram, Gatwech shared a Marcus Garvey quote that embodies her own views: “The black skin is not a badge of shame but rather a glorious symbol of national greatness.”

Gatwech tells Yahoo Beauty that she’s serious about seeing her dark skin as a blessing. “I love every part of it. I love the fact my skin is unique and that my whole skin is one tone, and finally how soft my skin is.”

Although she encountered a lot of discrimination from different designers, makeup artists, and fellow models, she empowered herself and felt confident about her skin color. And that she is inspiring all women and younger black girls who may feel similarly with her.

As quoted, Gatwech said:

“All women are equal, and we should stand together rather than be against each other.”

“You are beautiful, you are unique, and there are people who love you just the way you are. They say the darker the cherry, the sweeter the juice. Embrace your darkness!”

Gatwech is one of a kind inspiration for everyone who has encountered bullying because of skin color. She is a very good example to be thankful and contented in everything that God has given.
