If she is placed in a dark background, you’ll probably notice her white eyes first, before any other part of her body.
South Sudanese Model, Nyakim Gatwech (@queenkim_nyakim) says, “First Things First: I’m so completely in love with myself and not in a narcissistic type of way. My skin tone has been previously judged and critiqued as ugly and undesirable so for me, such a statement is absolutely revolutionary (it shouldn’t be, but it is). So for all the girls who are equally blessed, do me a favour and flaunt it, work it, be it! Live your true, authentic life!”
The 24-year-old model has been making headlines for her incredibly rich, even toned, dark skin.
Nicknamed “Queen of Dark” by her friends and colleagues, Nyakim is extremely proud of her skin and encourages everyone else to do the same.
