World record for youngest woman to grow a full beard

Harnaam Kaur says her achievement will help her overcome years of bullying.

Body positive campaigner Harnaam Kaur has been named by Guinness World Records as the youngest woman in the world to grow a full beard.
The 21-year-old from Berkshire, England said the formal recognition of her six-inch long facial hair would help her overcome years of bullying about her appearance.
On Wednesday Harnaam took to Twitter to thank Guinness and said “This is a great accomplishment for me!”
Ms Kaur sufferes from polycystic ovary syndrome, a hormonal condition that can cause growth of excess facial hair.
Earlier this year the Brit was the first woman with a beard to walk the runway at London Fashion Week.
