A young bearded woman, Hamaam Kaur has made it to the Guinness World Record of 2016 as she was declared as the world most bearded woman.

Speaking about the new feat, the beautiful Kaur who is also a body image activist said, “I am super proud to hold this record, the inner child in me is so pleased. I grew up reading this book, I even tried breaking some of my own records wanting to be in this book,” Kaur, 24, wrote on Instagram Thursday. Rather than remove her facial hair — the result of a hormonal condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome, for which September happens to be awareness month — the British challenger of beauty norms has chosen to nurture her whiskers.

“It is amazing to be valued and celebrated being a Bearded Lady. I am proud to hold this amazing record,” she continued. “I hope those who read or see my record can take away positivity, inspiration and realise that no matter who you are or what you look like, you are officially amazing!”

According to Yahoo news, Kaur has joined other beauty –themed who have broken records this year. They are Tyler Wright,the largest afro(10 inches high and 9 inches wide); a group of 261 people in Milan who were recognized for the category Most People Wearing Their Hair in a Beehive; and Charlotte Guttenberg, 67, and her partner, Charles “Chuck” Helmke, both of Florida, for Most Tattooed Senior Citizens. Their bodies are covered with tats 91.5 percent and 93.75 percent, respectively.

Kaur who was named by Guiness as the youngest female with full beard started developing facial hair at age 11. She faced a lot of stigmatization and bullying. But when she got to the age of 16, she made up her mind to live with the way she is.

Celebrating with her was one of her 61,000 Instagram supporters who wrote, “I love that there was a record to break!” “Not because others have gone through the pain you have, but because it’s amazing to see ‘different’ celebrated and honoured. Congratulations!”
