Meet Nyakim Gatweh, a model from South Sudan who teaches people not to be afraid of the dark. She resolutely destroys the standards of traditional beauty and motivates others to do the same.

The bright 24-year-old model, who now lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is not confused by her incredibly dark skin. "My blackness is elegant. After all, I represent a nation of warriors," the girl signed one of her many photos on Instagram, each of which collects more than 10 thousand likes.

Under another picture, she described in detail how an Uber driver once offered to "whiten" her skin, but she only laughed in response. "You won't believe the questions they ask me and how they look at me because of the color of my skin."

Nyakim is not only an ardent supporter of diversity in the fashion industry, but also a loud voice for the rights of African Americans around the world. She was even once called the "Queen of Darkness", but she gladly accepted this title. "Black is bold, black is beautiful, black is golden… Don't let American standards destroy your African soul. Love the skin you live in, no matter what color or shade it is."
