A woman with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) was teased her entire life for her hairy appearance, but she finally stopped shaving after she found love.
For over 10 years Nova Galaxia shaved her face every day. But, after finding a partner, 25-year-old Ash Byrd, she finally had the confidence to grow a "hipster beard".
The 26-year-old started dating her model girlfriend after seeing her at a fashion show. Byrd accepted Galaxia just the way she is.
“I love her beard. It’s a part of us as a couple now. Yes people do stop and stare at us, watch us walk down the street and ask Nova random questions to determine her gender, but she's never been happier and that makes me proud.", Byrd said.
