The youngest woman with a full beard has been identified by the Guinness World Records as Harnaam Kaur from Slough, UK.
Harnaam is 24 years 282 days. She has polycystic ovary syndrome, a hormonal condition that causes her to grow excess facial hair.
The young lady said she came to terms with her condition after she was baptized a Sikh which forbids the cutting of body hair.
She described her achievement as being ‘absolutely humbling’. Her beard has grown up to six inches long in some places.
”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.”
”I feel more feminine, more sexy and I think I look it too.”
”I’ve learned to love myself for who I am, nothing can shake me now.”
The record holder has battled many years of bullying while trying to cope with her appearance. She has however made her mark as an anti-bullying activist and amazingly a catwalk model.
In March 2016, Harnaam Kaur became the first female to walk the runway with a beard at London Fashion Week.
Other achievements worthy of attention to make the Guinness World Records include Lizzy, the Great Dane named the tallest living female dog. She stands 96.41 cm tall from the floor to her haunches.
According to the Guinness World Records, Lizzy is so tall that her food bowl has to be put on a chair because she cannot reach the floor to eat.
The most tattooed senior citizens were also identified. Pensioners Chuck Helmke, 76, and Charlotte Guttenberg, 67, were named the most tattooed male and female senior citizens in the world.
Chuck has 93.5 per cent of his body covered in tattoos while Charlotte has covered 91.5 per cent of her body with tattoos since first being inked just 10 years ago.
