Exotic Dark skinned Sudanese Model is Glowing
Exotic Dark skinned Sudanese Model is literally glowing! I don’t think I have ever been more proud of being a black. Nyakim Gatwech is the new hot in the modeling industry. She’s literally on fire. Okay so I may be overstretching things a little bit, but you don’t get to see really dark skinned models every day. I mean what is it with these exotic dark skinned Sudanese models? Alek Wek, Ataui Deng, Ajak Deng and the likes. I think it’s a family thing.
So basically the new Queen of Dark, Nyakim Gatwech is seriously making headlines.
The 24-year-old, South Sudanese fashion model is owning the title proudly.
“My family is originally from a town called Mawut, Sudan, but I was born in Gambella which the border of Ethiopia which is where I grew up.
Whats’ phenomenal about both Mawut and Gambella is the rich culture and closeness of the people. South Sudan should be known for its exotic people.”
As I mentioned earlier, Sudan has produced a couple of notable models carrying this depth of richness in their skin. Countries like Chad, Sudan and Ethiopia have been producing beauties for a while now. The whole world is still warming up to really dark skinned models.

Gatwech only felt the rarity of her appearance when she arrived in the US. We Africans are already kind of used to such dark-skinned beauty. This should serve as encouragement to stop bleaching really.
“My peers bullied me for my skin stone, I heard comments such as “take a shower, you are dirty” and “smile so we can see you” throughout middle and high and school.
One specific incident that I remember is when a random guy bet with his friend that I was wearing black leggings. He couldn’t believe that I was not wearing any leggings and that this was my skin tone.
But I have realized that me accepting my melanin has also empowered others to accept themselves and have assured me that I am not alone.“
You really should follow the dark skinned Sudanese model, Nyakim Gatwech on her Instagram.
