Black is certainly beautiful but South Sudanese model Nyakim Gatwech has taken the beauty of black to a whole new level. She is basically from South Sudan and she’s starting to pop up in all the international magazines.
Gatwech is exquisitely beautiful and has incredible eyes. She is glamorous, elegant and so dark that she’s been dubbed as the ‘Queen of the Dark’.
NYAKIM GATWECH – QUEEN OF THE DARK
‘Queen of the Dark’ is a nickname that Sudanese model Nyakim Gatwech is proud of. She loves her skin color and is proud of being black and beautiful. Apart from modeling, she is a role model for young women and in particular black women, all around the world.
Be proud of who you are, Stay true to your own standards. And never let American standards and stereotype define you.
It is true that in America, there is a stereotype of beauty being white, light and blonde. In fact, it was an Uber driver in Minneapolis, Minnesota, who once suggested Nyakim Gatwech to bleach her dark skin. Instead of taking offense, Gatwech laughed openly.
BE PROUD OF WHO YOU ARE
Gatwech believes in diversity, she believes in people staying true to their roots and being who they are. It is important that we are comfortable with who we are.
Black is beautiful and it is bold. And right now, 2017, there is an incredible stream of black consciousness. Black women leave their hair natural, love their skin natural and carry with beauty proudly.
As it should be! Gatwick is just 24 but is sure to go on to much bigger things.
Nyakim Gatwech talks about representing a ‘Nation of warriors’. She has a few hundred thousand followers on social media and her photographs on Instagram are magnificent. She is dark, elegant, fierce about women rights and truly conscious of being proud of who you are.
Naomi Campbell, supermodel of the 80s, first ‘broke all the rules’ regarding skin color and since then things have progressed nicely.
We still have a long way to go with diversity and stereotype but with Nyakim Gatwech, we are sure to get there.
