Today we turn the spotlight on South Sudanese model, Nykhor Paul. Bet you have heard of countless stories of models being scouted on the streets or at randoms places. This African beauty is no different. Just like most models, she was first discovered at the tender age of 14 while out shopping with her mum in the U.S

Nykhor has a lot to be thankful for, she fled from the Sudanese Civil war with her family in 1995 to an Ethiopian refugee camp.

With a degree in biology, Nykhor is no more about that refugee girl life, She has graced the pages of many high profiled magazines and strutted her fabulous legs during NewYork and Paris Fashion weeks.

Women of color always complain of racism in the modelling industry. A couple of months ago, Nykhor Paul made a lengthy statement that could have probably won her the Ambassador for black models title (if that existed). The “It” girl said…

“Dear white people in the fashion world!
Please don’t take this the wrong way but it’s time you people get your sh*t right when it comes to our complexion! Why do I have to bring my own makeup to a professional show when all the other white girls don’t have to do anything but show up wtf! Don’t try to make me feel bad because I am blue black its 2015 go to Mac, Bobbi Brown, Makeup forever, Iman cosmetic, black opal, even Lancôme and Clinique carried them plus so much more. there’s so much options our there for dark skin tones today. A good makeup artist would come prepare and do there research before coming to work because often time you know what to expect especially at a show! Stop apologizing it’s insulting and disrespectful to me and my race it doesn’t help, seriously! Make an effort at least! That goes for NYC, London, Milan, Paris and Cape Town plus everywhere else that have issues with black skin tones. Just because you only book a few of us doesn’t mean you have the right to make us look ratchet. I’m tired of complaining about not getting book as a black model and I’m definitely super tired of apologizing for my blackness!!!! Fashion is art, art is never racist it should be inclusive of all not only white people, shit we started fashion in Africa and you modernize and copy it! Why can’t we be part of fashion fully and equally?”

Love it! Here are a few photos proving why Nykhor Paul is the most sort after model in the game
