South Sudanese Model Was Told To Bleach Her Skin And Becomes A Supermodel Instead

This stunning model was bullied her entire life all because she is a melanin goddess!

the Shade Room reports that Nyakim Gatwech, the 24-year old modeling sensation, didn't always possess the confidence she has now, “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,” she told Yahoo Beauty.

The model opened up and took us into some specific bullying moments, recalling a time when a complete stranger bet his friend $20 to ask her if she was wearing leggings of if her skin was really that black.

However over time she realized the immense beauty she posses, “My chocolate is elegant. So is what I represent… A nation of warriors,” says Nyakim, who loves her new nickname the “Queen of the Dark.”

Here are some of her photos that will leave you swooning and screaming "Yaaaas Hunty!!"
