Throwback: Meet Nyakim Gatwech, The Model Who Rejected $100,000 To Bleach Her Skin Color

Written by Muwaffaq Yunus

Black is beautiful and I love it when people eradicate the idea of bleaching from their minds. I don’t know what makes them think they can only look beautiful if they bleach their skin.

Some people are coerced into bleaching their skin by virtue of peer pressure only to end up regretting their actions in the near future. This is when they wish they had never initiated such steps looking at the health risks they would be facing, but it will be too late.

This article talks about an African queen who is an inspiration to all. Her name is Nyakim Gatwech and she is a very beautiful Ethiopian-born American model of South Sudanese descent. Guess what positioned her in the limelight? Well, she attracted attention from people as a result of how beautiful her skin color is.

She has a dark skin color which is just awesome and people cannot stop watching it. Some even call her the “Queen of the dark” due to the nature of her skin.

She claims she rejected a $100,000 offer to bleach her skin after a certain white Uber driver made that proposal. Gatwech isn’t moved by money, she just loves her skin color!!!
