My trip to Greece was a celebratory gift for graduating nursing school, passing my licensure exam, and concluding my term as president of a student nursing organisation, she explained.

Before going on the trip I researched things to do I came across various Santorini flying dresses. I knew I wanted to be part of such a fun and magical shoot.

I reached out to photographer Chaltcev Aleksandr and makeup artist Elina and they were so lovely to work with. They even showed my boyfriend who is a budding photographer how to capture the same great shots!

Uploading the pictures on her Instagram, Alexandra told her followers an anecdote where a classmate told her shed be more attractive if she had eurocentric features.

Though she was hurt by the comments, she made an active effort to learn self-care and self-love. The Santorini photos were just proof of that, she told Metro.co.uk.

Seeing all of the positive comments on the viral tweet truly makes my heart smile. Self-love is a process and Im so glad to genuinely love me and be able to have that shine through those photos.

Its been so nice to see the comments and read the messages of people saying that I inspired them to love their dark skin. Its been even nicer to receive text messages and calls from my baby cousins and family members saying that Im making them proud.

Representation is important and by them learning to love the skin their in — I know Ive made a positive impact.

On her Twitter, she wrote: The people in Greece were looking at me like “Wakanda is real”.

We can definitely see the black girl magic.
