Melanin Inspiration: Khoudia Diop tribute to Senegal

For me representation is everything.  Especially because I live as a minority here in Germany, I love to see positive images of black being represented as beautiful.

I personally love the tribute Khoudia Diop does to her country Senegal on their Independence Day.

 

The shoot which is titled Nyenyo (The blacksmiths and metalworkers of the Senegalese caste system)  saw Khoudia transform into a Wolof woman

 

 

 The model says;

My Senegalese roots mean so much to me… It’s very personal. I love my country, my culture, my heritage. It is home and also a major part of who I am. I discovered so much about myself, and my culture has had a huge impact and importance on my journey of self-love… From loving my upbringing to the bullying then seeing the world outside of Senegal. Are there things I would change? Sure! But there are also certain things I cherish about being a Senegalese (Wolof woman).
