Nyakim Gatwech's parents lived in Maiwut, South Sudan, before fleeing to Kenya.
During the South Sudanese civil war, Nyakim was born in Gambela, Ethiopia. They then relocated to Kenya, where they lived in refugee camps until she was 14 years old, at which point they relocated to the United States. Nyakim was born in Buffalo, New York, and moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, later in life. Despite never having visited the region, she has stated that she considers herself a South Sudanese. She began pursuing a modeling career after participating in a fashion show at St. Cloud State University. She appeared in the promotional posters for the 2017 film Jigsaw.
Due to her naturally dark skin, Gatwech has gained the moniker "Queen of the Dark." Gatwech has struggled with self-esteem issues and comments from people who support bleaching to lighten skin color, but thanks to the love and encouragement of her fans, she has learned to embrace her natural beauty and pigmentation. She has over 900,000 Instagram followers.
Here are some lovely and endearing images of her.
Her skin color has really shown that black is indeed beautiful, and we hope that other people with similar skin to hers will be as proud as she is and will not change their complexion.
