Lilly Singh – Superwoman
Ranking 8th on the Forbes list of the most highly paid YouTubers worldwide, Lilly Saini Singh is an Indo Canadian YouTube video maker or Vlogger. Apart from enjoying her fame as a comedian, Lilly also acts as a motivational speaker.
The 28 year old YouTube star Lilly Singh celebrates her birthday on September 26 every year. This young Vlogger came out with the idea of starting her YouTube channel way back in 2010. Those were the days Superwoman Lilly was fighting depression and trying to find a way to express herself. The reason for her depression, well, she herself doesn’t know. To quote Superwoman’s interview with People magazine, “I didn’t have goals. I didn’t feel like eating. I was upset for absolutely no reason, I told myself, you have a choice: Either continue feeling this way or do something to change your life.” When asked how she fought depression, she says – “People ask how I got out of my depression, and I don’t know. Something in my brain just switched.”
As Lilly Singh’s family is from Punjab, India, her videos emphatically bring out the rooted connection she shares with her culture. Her video series, ‘My Parent’s react…’ essays the stereotypes associated with brown parents, and to a large extent we can’t help but agree to the caricatures she draws. Parallel to video making, Lilly Singh has also completed her university education and boasts a degree in Psychology.
