*** EXCLUSIVE *** SLOUGH - UNITED KINGDOM - UNDATED: Harnaam Kaur, 23, at her home in Slough, England. MEET the 23-year-old girl who?s growing a beard ? and says she feels more feminine than ever. Harnaam Kaur, from Slough, suffers with polycystic ovary syndrome, which causes excessive hair growth. She was just 11 years old when it started appearing and she spent her teenage years desperately trying to remove it by waxing TWICE a week and covering her body in baggy clothes. The primary school teaching assistant endured vile abuse at school and strangers would stare at her on the street. Harnaam became so self conscious she refused to leave her house, except to go to lessons, and at her lowest point she began self harming and even considered taking her own life. But, at the age of 16, she finally found the courage to accept her facial hair after being baptised as a Sikh. The religion dictates that the body should be left in its natural state and body hair must be left to grow. The decision proved controversial with her family but Harnaam was determined to show that she was beautiful no matter what she looked like. Today, seven years on, she says she is more body confident than ever before and hopes her story will help other women in her situation. UK Office, London.

Ha da sempre combattuto con questa “malattia” ma soprattutto con chi l’ha sempre derisa. A 16 anni però Harnaam ha deciso di dare una svolta alla sua vita e ha aderito al Sikhismo, la religione che vieta il taglio dei peli del corpo. Da allora si sente in pace con sè stessa: “La barba sul mio viso è parte di me, Dio mi ha fatta così e io sono felice”.
