Meet The Queen Of The Dark Who Was Told To Bleach Her Incredibly Dark Skin By Uber Driver
Meet 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.
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.”
Gatwech is not only an advocate for diversity in the fashion industry, but also a voice for Black rights around the world. Love the skin you live in, no matter what colour or shade it may be.
