This is Khoudia Diop, a Senegalese model that calls herself ‘melanin goddess’. Rightfully so, as her amazing dark skin clearly speaks for itself.
Khoudia, who models in Paris and New York, quickly got attention after she was cast as one of the models for Tori Elizabeth’s and Victory Jones’ The Colored Girl Campaign, which was aimed at celebrating the diversity of the brown skin.
Flashing her pearly white teeth, Khoudia boldly embraces her dark skin with pride as she continuously denounces any support for the use of any sort of skin lightening agents.
And despite being new to the modelling world, Khoudia’s confidence seems to know no bounds as she continues to catch the eyes of millions of people around the world.
If her Instagram photos are anything to go by, then she obviously has the love and support of a wonderful boyfriend, who sings her praises and cheers her on.
Khoudia is young, beautiful and a proud black woman and we can’t wait to see her join other amazing African women like Lupita Nyong’o and Tiwa Savage in making the black skin proud. Go girl!
