A Model From Sudan Titled As “The Queen Of The Dark” Refused Offer to Bleach Her Skin for $10,000

Most men would seek out girls with white skin complexion and fine body figure. A lot of people perceived these type of notion as a standard for beauty that is why there are a lot of women who try to change their skin color and achieve a white-skin glow. However, there is also some woman who prefer to stay on their natural color despite the criticism they face.

One person who experienced all sorts of disapproval and discontent from different people and even towards her peers is Nyakim Gatwech, a 24-year old model with an African heritage who is currently living in Minneapolis, US. She has gained thousands of followers and supporters on various social media due to her “chocolate-black skin.”

Even when she’s just a child, she had struggled all her life because of the insults she had to endure while growing up. In some of her posts, she details how she loved her skin complexion. She stated that:

“Dear my moonshine dark skin, sun-kissed complexion, burn skin or whatever they might call you: You are beyond beautiful and the love I have for is unconditional because you are me”.

She promotes her African and Nuer blood that runs in her body which she takes pride of.

“Black is bold, black is beautiful, black is gold. Don’t let American standards damage your African soul,” as she states in her captions while she glamorously stands out in her photos.

“Some people stay Snapping me asking me why am I so dark? How on earth they expect me to answer that question? Besides the fact that I'm blessed with melanin, and I love all this darkness,” she stated.

Nyakim also explained in an article on Yahoo Beauty about how she built her confidence in her dark skin color. She told that she was constantly gets bullied in school by telling her things like “You black as hell, take a shower.”

There was also a time that she was desperate and hated herself. She even admitted that: “There was a time in my life where I considered bleaching myself to avoid the dirty looks, the laughter, and for boys to find me attractive.”

Despite all the things that pulled her down, she still endured. After gaining confidence in herself, she had built a reputation on social media by being a fashion icon. She also exerts effort on her advocacy to fight black discrimination all around the world by posting photos on the internet while promoting self-love and redefining the idea of beauty.

One of her inspiring statements that she had said is that: “You represent me, and I represent you and let show the world how beautiful and intelligent we are apart from just being dark skin. Because we are more than what this society thinks of our dark skin, let stand up for those who can’t. Let’s speak up those who can’t. And stay beautiful while doing it.”

After being a victim of colorism, she took on Instagram her experience after dealing a conversation with an Uber driver. She stated in her post that:

“I was asked by my Uber driver the other day, he said, don’t take this offensive but if you were given 10 thousand dollars would you bleach your skin for that amount? I couldn’t even respond I started laughing so hard. Then he said so that a no and I was like hell to the f****** yeah that a no, why on earth would I ever bleach this beautiful melanin God bless me with.”

Even being discouraged by a lot of bashers and haters, she never felt bad to herself again because of her fans and followers that support her to become a beacon of hope for all the people that get bullied. She wrote a very powerful message and stated that:

“My skin absorbs the sun’s rays and my hair defies gravity. Now you can’t tell me I’m not magical!”
