Netizens of the Internet are stunned by Khoudia Diop’s remarkable dark skin. The Senegalese model who was once nicknamed “darky” and “daughter of the night” is receiving overwhelming positive feedback for her striking features, especially on Instagram where she regularly shares pictures of herself
Names such as “Darky”, “Daughter of the Night”, and “Mother of the Stars” were once words used to hurt her.
She talked about growing up and being bullied just for the way that she looked and her difference from others. “Bullies used to come with all kinds of names thinking I’ll feel bad about my color, well guess what, I loved them all and showed them how much I didn’t care about what they think,” she said.
Now that she has fully embraced her own beauty and her individuality, Khoudia is now standing proudly above these names.
