South Sudanese Model Nyakim Gatwech has entered the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s most Dark person.
Gatwech, 27, has often highlighted how she has been a victim of racism with many people asking her to bleach her skin.
The model at one point narrated how she had used to have self-esteem issues before she learned to embrace her dark skin and flaunt her beauty.
With her deeply pigmented skin and fierce determination, the dark skin model is breaking down the barriers of conventional beauty and encouraging others to do the same.
The fashion icon currently lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States.
Gatwech is not only an advocate for diversity in the fashion industry but also a voice for Black rights around the world. She’s even been dubbed “Queen of Darkness,” a title she happily accepts.
“Black is bold, black is beautiful, black is gold… Don’t let American standards damage your African soul.” Love the skin you live in, no matter what color or shade it may be!” reads one of her captions on Instagram
