Melanism is an ancient Greek word for black pigment. It is also what we use today to describe a skin pigment condition. It is the opposite of albinism and it proves that human beings come in ALL beautiful colors. There are certain stories that sometimes show the gleam of hope in the horrors of today's beauty standards. Young 19 year old brand spankin' new breakout model, Khoudia Diop, from Paris, has one of those stories. Khoudia is joining the ranks of other skin pigmented blessed models who are breaking the mold of what the industry considers normal. The top models doing this include Shaun D. Ross, Winnie Harlow, Diandra Forrest, Rick Genest, Connie Chiu, and many many more. Khoudia has been modeling for two years now, and her career is a fast growing one. Despite every day online bullying from people who have nicknamed her, "darkie" or "daughter of the night". For a 19 year old she sure is wise beyond her years.
