Supatra Sasuphan is Hairiest Girl in the World *PIC*
Supatra, from Pranakom, Thailand, has been tormented the entire 10 years of her life for being very hairy. She's been called Monkey Face and Wolf Girl by the neighborhood children and such name calling and bullying has driven Supatra to tears on more than one occasion.
Supatra would also cry when strangers would stop in the street and stare and point at her when she was out with her family and her few friends.
Supatra's tears have now ceased since she has gotten into the Guinness Book of World Records as the hairiest girl in the world. Supatra says that getting into Guinness has strengthened her confidence and that she is "very happy to be in the Guinness World Records. All I did was answer a few questions about myself and then they gave it to me."
Supatra suffers from a rare genetic condition that causes hair to grow all over her face. Years and years ago she may have been sold into or made to join a circus but not today, thankfully. Supatra, with her new found confidence, loves to listen to Thai pop music and she choreographs dance routines for herself and her friends.
Good for you Supatra, you are inspirational and we are very happy you are a confident and creative young woman who can show the world a thing or two about acceptance and compassion.
