Meet the Woman Who Straight-Up Rocks a Beard like a Man!

Harnaam Kaur is a 23-year-old teaching assistant from the U.K. And it so happens that she proudly sports a beard. 

Harnaam Kaur has a condition called polycystic ovary syndrome that makes her grow excessive hair like a man and she was just 11 when she started sprouting facial hair. She tried shaving, bleaching, waxing twice a week but nothing quite worked. In school, she was bullied, called names like "beardo" and "she-male". It even got to the point where she was afraid to leave her room, self-harming and was having suicidal thoughts.

But later on, at 16, Harnaam was baptized as a Sikh and because one of the religion's tenets is that body hair
must be left to grow, Harnaam stopped cutting her hair. Her parents initially opposed the decision, but Kaur said she was tired of hiding her true self.  
"This is who I am. I’m different. And I’ve learned to accept it. Fully.
