Khoudia Diop has experienced demeaning comments in reference to her dark skin tone since her teen years. Originally from Senegal, she moved to France when she was 15. Bullies would make comments like “darkie” and “daughter of the night”. Now she is a model living in NYC managed by The Colored Girl, Inc with over 230k Instagram followers.
Because of my dark, melanin rich complexion and because I want to inspire young girls and let them know that we are all goddesses inside and out. The message I have for my sisters is that how you look doesn’t matter as long as you feel beautiful inside. I want to inspire other young women of color and empower them. I want them to know that they can do and be anything they dream of. – Khoudia Diop @melaniin.goddess
There's not enough platforms where the accomplishments, the joy and positive contributions to society women of color put forward are celebrated, so we created ADELPHEE. If I am not sharing black girl magic on ADELPHEE you can find me on blacknaps.org where I share natural hair care advice and tips.
