We live in a world which comes with its own mysteries and different kind of people. At times, even the tiniest of thing can make us wonder what exactly happened or is this even real? The same goes for Supatra ‘Natty’ Sasuphan, a 17-year old girl from Bangkok who got famous for something unusual. Termed as the hairiest girl in the world, Natty is suffering from a rare genetic disease called Ambras Syndrome or Werewolf Syndrome. Yes, you can guess that due to the syndrome the person has hair growing on the entire body, including the whole face. But Natty finally shaves her face off and the reason is adorable.
Here is why the hairiest girl in the whole world shaves her face off!
Because there are rare and very few cases of the Werewolf Syndrome, a permanent cure is yet to be found. Natty did undergo a laser surgery which in general shaves off the hair but it didn’t work out for her. Rather, the hair started growing faster making her the hairiest girl in the world. In the year 2010, even the Guniess book of world record declared her as the hairiest girl in the world.
It’s understandable that living a life with a rare condition of Werewolf syndrome is not easy. And that’s exactly what happened with Natty. She was often bullied for her condition. From being called names such as ‘wolf girl’ and ‘Chewbacca’ to ridiculed for being that way, she has gone through all. But the girl with hair all over her face didn’t give up. In her words, “let the haters stop her from doing her thang.”
After being interviewed by the Guinness book of world record for being the hairiest girl in the world, she talked about her bullying openly. She said, “I don’t feel any different to anyone else, and I’ve got lots of friends at school… Being hairy makes me special. There were a few people who used to tease me and call me monkey face but they don’t do it anymore. I’m very used to this condition. I can’t feel the hair as it has always been like this. I don’t feel anything. It does sometimes make it difficult to see when it gets long. I hope I will be cured one day.”
Now, this is a story we all have read. But Natty has made it to the news again. This time because she recently posted a picture after she shaves her face off. And the reason being love. Yes, the hairiest girl in the world has found her love of the life. She is now married and the picture she posted had this as the caption, “You’re not just my first lover, you’re the love of my life.” Now, that’s wonderful.
