The South Sudanese-Australian model will walk in this year's show and everyone's excited about it.
A video of South Sudanese-Australian model, Duckie Thot learning that she'll be walking in this year's Victoria's Secret runway show, has gone viral, and rightfully so—her reaction is super pure and heartwarming.
The in-demand model—who starred in Rihanna's Fenty Beauty campaign and made her runway debut last year at Kanye West's Yeezy S/S '17 show—shared a video on Twitter, showing her joyous reaction to learning the good news. "Words can't express how much this means to me, thank you Victoria's Secret for the opportunity of a lifetime. #VSFashionShow," she wrote.
Watch as the model beams with excitement and shares warm hugs with her team:

Duckie follows in the footsteps of models like iconic South Sudanese-British model Alek Wek, Herieth Paul of Tanzania and Maria Borges, the Angolan model who made history in 2015 by becoming the first to rock an afro during a Victoria's Secret show. Nigerian model, Mayowa Nichols will also be walking in this year's show.
Last year, we listed Duckie as one of our top 11 African models to watch. Major congrats to her!
