Harnaam Kaur has polycystic ovary syndrome, which causes excessive hair growth all over her body.

Since the age of 11, Harnaam Kaur has had excessive hair growth on her face and body, Irishexaminer.com reports.

It’s caused by polycystic ovary syndrome (PCS) and despite being badly bullied for it, she decided to let her beard grow – and she’s proud of it.

Harnaam, from Slough, appeared on ITV’s This Morning to discuss the effects of bullying and now she has dealt with it.

As a teenager she desperately tried to get rid of her facial hair by shaving or waxing but when she was baptised as a Sikh eight years ago (a religion that forbids shaving body hair) she decided to embrace who she was, beard and all.

The cruel taunts she has received have been so bad that she contemplated suicide, so now she’s taking part in an anti-bullying campaign.

“I call it my lady beard, I don’t think I’d ever get rid of it,” she said. “I feel that if a bearded woman can live on this earth in this day and age then anyone can accept their body for the way that it looks.” 

“For me making this film has been liberating because I know it’s going to do so much good for the children that are being bullied,” she said.

And the people of Twitter are seriously impressed with her positive attitude towards body image.
