A model who was asked by an Uber driver if she'd bleach her body for £10,000 is rapidly becoming an icon for celebrating the beauty of black skin.

Nyakim Gatwech, 24, from South Sudan - who has earned the nickname Queen of the Dark - said she laughed so hard she couldn't initially speak, before asking him: 'Why on earth would I ever bleach this beautiful melanin?’

Nyakim, who now lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, uses her Instagram account not only to show off her sultry modelling poses, but to advocate diversity and stand up for those who don't have a voice.
