Alma Torres from New York recently made headlines for her outstanding looking. The woman (27) has suffered PCOS – polycystic ovary syndrome that produces a higher-than-normal amount of male hormones since her teenage. Continuously shaving through years, she now decided to stop doing altogether even though the syndrome causes her to grow much facial hair.

The woman who is working at a healthcare center started developing this hormone condition when she was 15 years old. Since then Torres has grown a beard. Alma first removed the dark hair on her face at the age of 16 as she had been bullied by her classmates.

Now, after 8 years of constantly trying to shave the hair by using several different methods like waxing, bleaching, and shaving, Alma Torres has opted to let her beard grow naturally. The 27-year-old woman officially steps another chapter of her life as she says that deciding to grow the beard is the best thing that she has ever done.

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.

With more than 6000 followers on Instagram, it’s not far off the mark to say Alman Torres set the ultimate example of a brave girl.
