South Sudanese model Nyakim Gatwech has taken Instagram by storm by posting stunning photos of herself with messages of body positivity. The 24-year-old has previously taken to the social media app to tell her fans about how an Uber driver suggested she should try to “bleach” her skin, writing: “You won’t believe the kind of questions I get and the kind of looks I get for having this skin.”

Nyakim Gatwech speaks about body positivity on her Instagram, she has now nearly 200,000 followers

Nyakim regularly shares stories about these sort of encounters, and captioned one photo: “So I got a snap a couple of days ago from my amazing followers lol. This is what it said, ‘Do you know if someone shoot you the bullet will come back and ask for a flashlight’. I swear that made my day, I literally laughed out loud. And my respond was, ‘I guess I’m too damn beautiful I can’t never get shot even if someone try to lol’…

Things like these stupid comments and questions can really make someone hate themselves if you don’t have self-love and confident in yourself. Always remember you are beautiful just different and unique.”
