"Super Black" Lady Who Went Viral Online Has Signed A Big Modeling Deal

Some Nigerians called her another Olajumoke, and that's obviously how her story is going. Anok Yai, a student at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire is set to become a top model.

In an interview with The Boston Globe, the 19-year-old South Sudanese student admitted that she thought it was an “average photo” and that she’d possibly gain a few new followers from the post. However, after receiving thousands of likes, the photo went viral.

“My phone just started vibrating rapidly for a long, long time,” Yai told The Boston Globe. “At first, I honestly thought someone made a meme of me or something.”

She was contacted by several modeling agencies, she has now signed with Next Models.

Yai, who’s studying biochemistry, plans to pursue modeling part-time while she continues college.

“It was a dream that I always wanted, but I wasn’t sure if it was going to happen,” she had said.

It would be recalled that the Sudanese black beauty was in Washington, D.C. last two weekend for the Howard Homecoming festivities when she was spotted by photographer Steven Hall who was taking photos of guests. And that's how her luck start.
