Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (Share An Interesting Story Behind Your Beard. We Want To Know Who The Man Behind The Beard Is.) Since growing my beard I have met so many amazing people online and in person. Started to grow when my mum was dying of cancer, but the beard has brought me joy in so many ways. Some hate some like, but I love it & am so grateful that out of such tragedy something wonderful came out it. Current Scottish Braw champion, 3 at the British & 4 at the worlds all for under 12". So many experiences I never knew I would have. Miss you mum!!!

Along with being a Foster Care and Adoption advocate, I'm a big believer in teaching young people how to defend themselves when necessary. Through Boxing, Wrestling, and BJJ, I have been able to teach see young people grow in their confidence, and learn real world strategies to defend themselves or escape potentially traumatic situations. It's been a great bonus to see that my beard has become a source of comfort and security for the little ones.

Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (Share An Interesting Story Behind Your Beard. We Want To Know ho The Man Behind The Beard Is.) When i was in my 10th grade, my beard had grown comparatively well against other students in my class and it made me feel older. I wasn't doing well in my math class that year and my teacher decided to mock me about my beard. Her exact words were "you wont get success growing a beard". At that time i laughed it out, but when i went back home it sort of hurt me and i wanted to prove her wrong. Since then i have won 3 national beard championships

Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (Share An Interesting Story Behind Your Beard. We Want To Know Who The Man Behind The Beard Is.) The last time I was cleaned shaven was Jan. 1st 2019. I decided to grow an untrimmed, untouched beard for 365 days or one year and document the process on Instagram @jakethebeardboss with one beard selfie per day for the entire "yeard". I did this so that beard lovers worldwide could follow along this ride with me. 13k followers and 700 days/pictures later I continue to do this daily, Dec. 31st 2020 will mark my 2 year untrimmed beard journey!

Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (Share An Interesting Story Behind Your Beard. We Want To Know Who The Man Behind The Beard Is.) A man of belief. A man of Morals. A man who lives on his own terms. A man of Honor who feels sharing is caring. With great beard, I feel a sense of responsibility. Taking care of it as one pampers a child. The love, care, and affection for his beard itself shows, how that person will be behind that Great Beard. As uncle ben said, "With great power comes great responsibility" similarly, "Only a responsible one can handle the power of MEANest Beard."

Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (Share An Interesting Story Behind Your Beard. We Want To Know Who The Man Behind The Beard Is.) The beard has been another hobby turned lifestyle. When i decided to grow out my facial hair i never imagined the journey it would have set me on. It takes dedication and patience, like fishing. I have researched and learned many things, changed my style, shaved and regrown my beard many times. I am proud to be a member of the Beard sub-culture, and enjoy the "Beard-nod" every time i see a fellow member.
