Meet the incredible 23-year-old woman who is growing a BEARD – and says it makes her feel MORE feminine and body confident.
Harnaam Kaur has polycystic ovary syndrome, which can cause excessive hair growth.
She was just 11 years old when a beard started to appear on her face and the hair quickly spread to her chest and arms.
The condition made her the victim of cruel taunts at school and on the street.
She even received DEATH THREATS from strangers over the internet.
But she’s now ditched her razor for good after being baptized as a Sikh – a religion where it is forbidden to cut body hair.
And she says she’s never looked back.
She said: “I would never ever go back now and remove my facial hair because it’s the way God made me and I’m happy with the way I am.
“I feel more feminine, more sexy and I think I look it too.
“I’ve learned to love myself for who I am nothing can shake me now.”
During her early teens, Harnaam was so ashamed of her beard that she resorted to waxing TWICE a week. She also tried bleaching and shaving.
But it only made the problem worse – the hair became thicker and spread.
And she became so self-conscious that she refused to leave the house.
At her lowest points she began self-harming and she even considered taking her own life.
She said: “I got bullied badly – at school I was called a ‘beardo’ and things like ‘shemale’ and ‘sheman.’”
Despite often being mistaken for a man, Harnaam says she feels more feminine than ever – choosing girly tops over baggy, high-necked jumpers.
She said: “I’m able to go out and shop in the women’s section without feeling I shouldn’t be there.
“I wear skirts, dresses and jewellery and I like to get my nails done like every other girl.”
Today Harnaam hopes her story will help other women find self-confidence.
She has taken the brave decision to share her story on YouTube – and continues to upload videos despite receiving death threats.
She said: “I’ve had people telling me they’re going to burn me and throw a brick at me – all sorts of things like that.
“But I’ve also had a lot of positive messages from women in the same situation as me.
“I’ve also had loads of nice comments from men all over the world – one even asked me to marry him!
“I want other women to find the strength that I have.
“If I had any message it would be to live the way you want – it’s your journey and it’s your life.”
