Photo of the Day: Alek Wek on the Cover of Under the Influence Magazine

Alek Wek reminds us again of how beautiful it is to be comfortable in your skin.  The Sudanese bombshell graced the cover of Under the Influence Winter 2012 Africa Issue looking all kinds of dark and lovely not to mention uber confident.  In a society that proclaims black/ dark skin as inferior or unattractive, Alek Wek has always ripped the runway stomping on the constant bullying, insults and pressure of the fashion world and many Americans alike.  I adore her for not giving a damn and continuing to snatch wigs regardless lol.  Alek Wek is the epitome of what being Shatterproof truly means!

I’m 24 and live in Florida. However I dream of moving to a city thats big enough for me and my in your face personality! I love all things hip hop and artsy as well as enjoying a good urban novel every now and then. I am currently attending college and look forward to graduating at the end of this year. I will be starting school again at a four-year university next spring (Go Bulls wink wink). I want to be an OBGYN when I graduate and have no plans of slowing down any time soon. I hope to inspire our readers and get them excited about looking awesome.
