Bullied Woman With Beard Embraces Her Looks And Has Message For All Women

She calls herself "beautifully different."

Harnaam Kaur is a body confidence activist. She also speaks out against bullying. But it wasn't always this way.

Kaur has a condition called polycystic ovary syndrome which can cause excess hair growth. As a result, she was the victim of bullying all through primary and secondary school. This led to self-harm and she thought about taking her life.

But Kaur decided to take all the energy she was putting into self-hatred and direct it to learning to love and accept herself. Over time, she began to change her thought process.

"I learned to live my life the way I see fit, instead of living life in regards to rules and regulations. I think now it's more about as a woman I stand for what I am and I don't think women need to look a certain way to be labeled as a woman. You can look like what you want," she told the hosts of British talk show "This Morning."

A powerful message for anyone who's ever felt unhappy with a part of their body. (That covers just about all of us.)
