This Woman Rocks A Full Beard Because Body Positivity Is Important

September 8, 2016

Conversations about body positivity often gets focused on weight, but for Harnaam Kaur, it was more complicated than that. She had to learn to love her beard.

Kaur has polycystic ovary syndrome, which caused her facial hair to grow. She was bullied as a child, but now she proudly grows it out. In fact, she was just announced as the Guinness World Record-holder for youngest woman to have a full beard.

And the spotlight isn't new for her. She got all kinds of attention as a model at London Fashion Week.

Keep fighting the good fight, Kaur.
