Yar Kang

Up to the Challenge Yar Kang: Founder, South Sudan Women’s Outreach: In the Egyptian city of Cairo, the refugee camp was buzzed with many activities as the search was on for contestants in an upcoming beauty pageant.

In certain corners, the usual talk about skin color and beauty was a hot topic as if only the color of your skin defined your beauty. It would not beat the imagination that such...
