Beaker of Hope

Vivian Cheruiyot has such a beautiful skin tone. I know that "ebony" is used as a descriptor for beautiful black women fairly frequently, but her skin really is the exact dark-brown-with-blue-undertones shade of ebony wood. So lovely.

(I held an actual piece of ebony up to the monitor for the sake of comparison, for what it's worth. Eschew hyperbole!)
