South Sudanese model Nyakim Gatwech is proud of her dark skin and wants the world to know that dark skin is beautiful too. The now Minneapolis resident fashion model has been criticized for her dark complexion all her life but she refuses to let the negativity bring her down and thinks of her skin tone as a beautiful blessing.
Since moving to the States, Gatwech is bullied even more for her pigmented skin. Recently, an Uber driver asked the 24-year-old model if she would bleach her skin if she was offered money for it? In an Instagram post, Gatwech explained how the conversation went and that she had nothing to say to the man.
