Hormonal condition grows hair on her face but she refuses to be depressed and bullied!

Human beings come in varied shapes and sizes. With a population of billions inhabiting this planet, isn’t it unfair to have a stringent standard of beauty? Same was the story of Harnaam Kaur, at the age of 11, a thick mane started growing on her face and rest of the body. This attracted a lot of negative attention from school mates and relatives. But Kaur rose above it all, a model and world record holder now, she promotes and practices body positivity.

Hailing from Berkshire, Britain, Kaur was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome as a result of which she had thick facial hair. The 26-year-old was a subject of bullying with classmates calling her names like ‘beardo’, ‘sheman’ etc.

The bullying had gotten so bad that she resorted to self-harm. Kaur wore baggy clothes to cover her hairy arms and chest and locked herself in the room, away from the world. But things took a turn for the better when Kaur was baptized at 16. A Sikh by religion, the baptism now meant that Kaur wasn’t allowed to cut her hair.

Despite her family’s objections, Kaur went forward with the baptism. However, at 17 she shaved her facial hair under the influence of her relatives. Kaur says that she didn’t feel like herself after that, the beard had become a part of her personality. She had a discovered a more confident side of her after the incident, all thanks to her greatest support, her brother.
