Harnaam Kaur holds the world record for being the youngest woman to grow a full beard, and she’s using her distinct appearance to take on bullies.
The 25-year-old, who suffers from the hormone imbalance polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), joins The Doctors to share how she turned her years of torment into a fight for those being bullied. She first began being bullied at the age of 11, when she started getting facial hair.
“I was body shamed and bullied a lot… the bullying led to me becoming very suicidal and I used to self-harm a lot too and going into to school every day was horrendous for me,” she tells The Doctors.
So how did Harnaam turn her pain into a form of empowerment?
She reveals that when she was 16 she hit her low point and was ready to end her life, but then thought, “If the bullies are allowed to live, why can’t I live?” She then told herself, “You need to learn to grasp hold of your life, you need to learn to embrace yourself and your uniqueness and find self-love, gain liberation from the pain you’re going through.”
In addition to unwanted hair, The Doctors explain that PCOS can cause small cysts on their ovaries, which are not usually harmful, but cause to hormonal imbalances. It can also lead to weight gain, fatigue, possible infertility and the thinning of the hair on your head.
