South Sudanese Model Fights For Diversity in the Fashion Industry


Nyakim Gatwech is a South Sudanese model who is not only an advocate for diversity in the fashion industry, but also a voice for Black rights around the world. 

She’s been dubbed “Queen of the Dark,” a title she happily accepts. “Black is bold, black is beautiful, black is gold… Don’t let American standards damage your African soul.” 

With her deeply pigmented skin and fierce determination, she’s breaking down the barriers of conventional beauty, and encouraging others to do exactly the same.
