Gorgeous “Queen Of The Dark” She Was Told To Bleach Her Skin, This Is How She Responded
Sudanese model Nyakim Gatwech has always been bullied for having dark skin, but the 24-year-old’s persistence and perseverance was shown in full when an Uber driver offered her $10,000 to bleach her skin in order to mask her complexion. Remarkably, Gatwech laughed in response : “Why on earth would I ever bleach this beautiful melanin God [blessed] me with. You won’t believe the kind of questions I get and the kind of looks I get for having this skin.”
Indeed, the degree of her patience and wisdom is one that all human beings should aspire to one day achieve: “It takes time to love who you are. Be confident in whatever the situation is. If you love yourself other people will see. It will shine through you and then they have the choice to accept you or walk away.” Gatwech is known as the “Queen of the Dark,” and young women see her as both a noble and beautiful role model: “When I put a picture up I’m telling people that no matter what you say, I love who I am. I love my skin tone. I’m telling people that I am beautiful even though I look different than the majority of people in this world I live in.”
Gatwech resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and she decided long ago to embrace her natural self as opposed to veiling it in any way whatsoever: “My chocolate is elegant. So is what I represent. . . . A nation of warriors.” Her social posts often receive over 10 thousand likes a piece, and she has seized the opportunity to articulate progressive and inspiring words: “Black is bold, black is beautiful, black is gold. . . . Don’t let American standards damage your African soul.”
