Britain's Daily Mirror reported that Indian-origin Harnaam Kaur started getting hair on her face, chest and arms when she was 11 years old because of polycystic ovary syndrome.

Kaur says initially she felt uncomfortable with the new change and tried methods like bleaching and waxing. "I got bullied badly — at school I was called a 'beardo' and things like 'shemale' and 'sheman'," Kaur told the Mirror. She even got death threats on the Internet.

All these actions even prompted her to think about committing suicide. But then Kaur decided to discontinue with her hair removal process after being baptised as a Sikh. It is not allowed to cut body hair in Sikh religion.

"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," she said. Kaur is now open about her condition and is not hiding her status. In fact, she has started a YouTube channel and is sharing her story with British media houses.

Kaur said there are still certain quarters which threaten her, but the positive messages from women are her inspiration and give her strength to carry on. She said she loves to dress up and wear jewellery just like any other woman.
