Dark-skinned women everywhere are bullied and discriminated against for their dark skin colour. Nyakim Gatwech uses her platform to address and challenge that.

A Uber driver offered “Queen of the Dark” South Sudanese model, Nyakim Gatwech, $10,000 to breach her skin. Nyakim laughed off the offer. “Why on earth would I ever bleach this beautiful melanin God blessed me with?” She asked.

Nyakim was born in Ethiopia where her parents had fled the South Sudanese civil war. The family then migrated to Kenya where they lived in refugee camps. They were later relocated to the US when she was 14.
