Torres says in an interaction with media,

 “I learnt to embrace what I couldn't change.”

The fact is that she hadn’t been diagnosed with PCOS when facial hair could be seen growing at the age of 15. It was until she turned 18. At that point, she described it as a slap to her face and that made her very depressed. This syndrome develops the symptoms including not only hair growth but also weight gain and irregular periods.
