For Kaur, it caused her to start sprouting facial hair when she was just 11.
“I used to have my face waxed two to three times a week,” she told the blog Rock N Roll Bride, “and on the days I couldn’t bare the pain I would simply shave.”
“I told myself, ‘The energy you are putting into ending your life, put all that energy into turning your life around and doing something better.’”
“I have now fallen in love with the elements on my body that people may call ‘flaws.’
“I love my beard, my stretch marks, and my scars,” she told Rock N Roll Bride. “These elements make me who I am, they make me whole, they make me complete.”
Kaur wants to remind people not to be too hard on themselves. “We are all imperfectly perfect,” she says.
“I wanted to show society that beauty isn’t just about looking a certain way. We are all so different, and we should all celebrate our individuality,” said Kaur.
“I used to keep my beard for religious reasons, but now I keep my hair to show the world a different, confident, diverse, and strong image of a woman.”
