Sudanese model nicknamed 'Queen of the Dark' offers stunning display of black beauty

Meet Nyakim Gatwech, the South Sudanese model taking the world by storm thanks to her flawless midnight complexion, penetrating gaze and unwavering message of empowerment.

The 24-year-old is as determined as she is breathtaking — living in Minnesota, Gatwech is on a mission to promote skin positivity and self-acceptance amongst women with darker hues. Along with her stunning photos, which she shares with nearly 100,000 followers on Instagram, she also sends out inspirational messages targeting women who are struggling to be comfortable in their own skin.

Accompanying one of her most popular photos on Instagram, Gatwech shared a Marcus Garvey quote that embodies her own views: “The black skin is not a badge of shame but rather a glorious symbol of national greatness.”
