Culture on My Mind
March 21, 2022
The week, I have the wisdom of Nyakim Gatwech on my mind.
Nyakim Gatwech is an Ethiopian-born American model of South Sudanese descent. Her dark skin color has earned her the nickname “Queen of the Dark”, and while she has faced self-esteem issues and comments from people who promote bleaching to lighten skin color, she has learned to embrace her beauty and pigmentation with love and support from her fans. Her quote about love can be found among many other affirmations on her Instagram page.
If people can hate for no reason, you can love for no reason. Spread love ❤️ .
Culture on My Mind is inspired by the weekly Can’t Let It Go segment on the NPR Politics Podcast where each host brings one thing to the table that they just can’t stop thinking about.
