For the past few weeks, the internet was astounded by the image of a Sudanese-Australian model who many claimed, looks just like Barbie!
21-year-old Nyadak Thot who goes by Duckie, shared a mesmerizing photo of herself on Twitter weeks ago, and many commented over how much she looks like a Barbie doll – some even questioned if she was real!
Duckie rose to fame on Australia’s Next Top Model when she was just 17 years old but the road was certainly not easy for her. She opened up about her struggle and humiliation she faced due to her natural hair, skin colour, and weight.
“I took quite a few blows as a 17-year-old girl — and it was hard to understand why,” she told Teen Vogue in 2016.
Now she is stronger than ever and happily accepted the ‘Barbie’ title given by her fans.
