Nyakim was born in Ethiopia, to her biological parents of South Sudanese descent. Because of frequent conflicts, Nyakim’s childhood memories are of migrations. Nyakim moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota (USA) as a teenager and continued to attend high school and college.
Unlike many people, Nyakim has unusually shiny black skin. Standing in the crowd, she always stands out and attracts the attention of many eyes. But instead of being embarrassed about her extreme difference, Nyakim is completely confident and loves this black skin.
“My dark skin is elegant. And I represent the kingdom of warriors,” Nyakim wrote in a personal Instagram photo.
She said once when she was taking a taxi, the driver asked: “If you were given 10,000 USD, would you bleach your skin?”. Nyakim just laughed and asked the driver why he suggested that. He said lighter skin color would help her have an easier life, more relationships, more job opportunities.
“Exfoliation can make life easier, but I want to take the hard road,” Nyakim replied bluntly.
Despite the sarcasm and prying tongue of the world, Nyakim has always felt that she is extremely attractive with her dark skin.
In addition to possessing special skin, Nyakim is also fortunate to be “gifted” by a tall, well-proportioned figure. She quickly caught the eye of model training experts. Very quickly, her special appearance helped her make her own mark in the fashion industry. She is known as the “dark queen”, a nickname that makes her very happy.
“Black is the color of boldness, black is beautiful and very precious… Don’t let American standards affect the Africans in your soul,” Nyakim declared.
Nyakim became a leading voice in the fight against apartheid. She also inspires a lot of people in the black community as well as all other girls about being confident in themselves.
At the age of 27, she has 937,000 followers on her Instagram account and is considered a talented model. The photos Nyakim posted on social networks always receive tens of thousands of likes thanks to her unusually attractive beauty.
According to Celebrity How, her net worth is currently around $4 million from modeling contracts and brand ambassadors of major companies such as Fashion Nova, Calvin Klein, Aldo, and Cosmopolitan.
