This Funzing Experience:

What is life like for a young woman growing up with a beard? What lessons can be learnt when it comes to self-esteem and body confidence? How can you deal with your bullies & detractors in a positive way? Join anti-bullying activist & model Harnaam Kaur for an eye-opening, inspirational talk on overcoming your social anxiety & your doubters.

Known as the "Bearded Dame", Harnaam Kaur had a history of facing up to bullies, online trolls and the usual considered 'beauty norms'. She was diagnosed with Polycystic ovary syndrome - a condition where the woman's level of sex hormones are off balance - at 12 years old, which had been leading to facial hair growing since for the previous few years.

Instead of being defeated by her detractors and her own self doubt, Harnaam instead focused on the beauty of her body and embraced her uniqueness; a process which eventually meant she gained real confidence and self esteem, and ultimately learning to love herself.

With her motto "My Body, My Rules", she turned herself into a body-positive activist and self love advocate to help others achieve the same empowering mindset. In this inspiring talk, she will speak about how to combat societal judgement and social anxiety, and embody love and acceptance.

Venue: Beach Blanket Babylon, Shoreditch

Doors open at 7 pm with the talk to begin at 7.30pm sharp.
