Brownness Babe of the week: Duckie Thot
Nyadak Thot, also known as Duckie is our brownness babe of the week. Originally from South Sudan, she was born and raised in Australia.
Her older sister Nikki (from Jamie and Nikki) inspired her to get into fashion modeling. As a little girl, Duckie would go to castings with her and dream of becoming a model. She was spotted by two producers of Australia Next Top Model but ended up being too young to participate in the show.
When it was time, she auditioned and was chosen for Australian Top Model's eighth cycle, where she faced a lot of backlash due to her skin color and weight, but managed to come in third place!
This ended up being the beginning of her career and since then, she has modeled for plenty of brands: Yeezy, Fenty x Puma, V Magazine, Paper Magazine, W Magazine, Refinery 29 and Pat McGrath.
Duckie, 2017 is your year.
