Nyakim Gatwech is the darkest female model alive, and she was once told by an Uber driver to go and bleach her skin. The South Sudanese descent African American model, who’s teaching people not to be afraid of the dark, recalled how the driver told her plainly to bleach herself a bit because she was too dark. 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. What the Uber driver failed to understand is that Nyakim has tried bleaching her skin before with all manner of bleaching creams, but as destiny would have it, these creams never worked on her. According to her, it was the mockery and statements from people that made her to consider bleaching the skin, but she is glad that the creams did not work on her. She is lucky because the skin is now the reason she is so popular and rich.
She must be very lucky because, the model now rakes in thousands of dollars from her modelling jobs. Furthermore, she wouldn't have become the model if she had bleached the skin earlier. The skin that initially made people to ridicule her is now the source of her employment and career. The stone, which the builders rejected, has become the chief corner stone. Other dark Africans are beginning to take up modelling jobs, including the Senegalese model, Khoudia Diop, a fellow South Sudanese American model, Anok Yai, and Ethiopian South Sudanese model, Shanelle Nyasiase. These are all dark skin models, and they are extremely doing well in the lucrative business. Bleaching Creams do not act on them mainly because of the thick layers of pigments on their skin which make them radiant dark. South Sudanese ladies are the darkest. Nearly half of the world's darkest models are from South Sudan or partly from there. Next time you consider bleaching your dark skin, just remember that it is their dark skins that made them popular, famous and rich. There are different ways to define beauty now, it is no longer the conventional "fair" lady stuff. The definition of beauty has changed over the years.
