23-year-old Ms Harnaam Kaur’s problems began after she was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome, a condition that causes excess hair growth. As a result, she endured years of cruel taunts about her looks and spent thousands of

But after converting to Sikhism, a religion that forbids cutting hair, she decided to embrace her looks and allowed her beard to grow.
