Khoudia Diop, 19, is a breathtaking. Like totally, her melanin is world stopping!

How anyone could have ever seen anything other than beauty when looking at this face is beyond me, but as we know, the western world has always struggled to recognize the beauty of dark skin.

Born in Senegal, but raised here in the States, Diop, told DailyMail that she was relentlessly teased as a child, and even continues to face criticism from the online community.

I was teased a lot growing up, because of my skin tone. By other kids, and now even online sometimes, people will make comments….Growing up, I faced it by confronting the bullies. As I grew, I learned to love myself more every day, and not pay attention to the negative people, which helped a lot.

Diop’s confidence is no doubt a big factor in her ability to land a modeling contract, and gain over 200,000 followers in Instagram under her name Melanin Goddess.

You might remember seeing Diop in the Colored Girls Inc. Campaign I featured about a few months ago. Since then her following is throw the roof and her opportunities have spawn #winning

Pure Beauty! It is so easy to get caught up with the internet standards for beauty. She is like no other, and for that, she can’t be matched. We can’t be matched! #BlackGirlMagic
