Despite having been teased her entire life by other children, Supatra Sasuphan is delighted to have received the title of 'World's Hairiest Girl.' The student from Thailand suffers from Hypertrichosis, a medical condition that causes excessive growth of hair in areas where hair does not normally grow.
For Supatra case, she has thick hair
