In another post, she wrote: "Dear my moonshine dark skin, sun-kissed complexion, burn skin or whatever they might call you: You are beyond beautiful and the love I have for [you] is unconditional because you are me."

She continued: "You represent me and I represent you and let['s] show the world how beautiful and intelligent we are apart from just being dark skin[ned].

"Because we are more than what this society think[s] of our dark skin let['s] stand up for those who can't. Let's speak up [for] those who can't. And stay beautiful while doing it."
