“in the coming years let’s make sure we teach our young ones to know their worth to know their potential in life to know that they loved no matter what, that beauty isn’t everything that being dark dark skin is beautiful let’s continue breaking down those barriers together let’s our melanin keep popping. Being dark skin is not only popping for now it’s not trend is not for season or a year is for life”
Twenty-four-year-old Nyakim Gatwech is as strong as is she beautiful. Along with her gorgeous photos, which she shares with her 89,000-plus followers on Instagram, she also sends out inspirational messages, especially to women who are struggling to be comfortable in their own skin.
In 2017, Gatwech took to Instagram to share her conversation with an Uber driver who asked the model if she would ever consider bleaching her skin. She responded saying:
“I was (asked by) my Uber driver the other day, he said, ‘Don’t take this offensive but if you were given 10 thousand dollars would you bleach your skin for that amount?’”, she wrote on Instagram.
