Lilly Singh is a YouTube sensation, vlogger, comedian, rapper, actress motivational speaker — and first openly queer woman of color late-night show host. Better known by her YouTube name ""Superwoman,"" she has more than 7 million video subscribers and over 1 billion video views. In Oct. 2015, Singh was ranked 8th on Forbes list of World’s Top Earning YouTube Stars of 2015. Singh made history with the premiere of her NBC show, A Little Late With Lilly Singh, becoming the only openly queer woman of color to host a late-night show on a major network.

Singh was born in Scarborough, a suburb of Toronto, Canada. The famous YouTube star graduated from York University with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. Singh struggled with depression, and used YouTube videos as therapy, and to make others happy. She started her own YouTube channel in October 2010, naming it ""Superwoman.""

Her videos include comedy sketches and her take on everyday activities — which are influenced by her Indian heritage. Arguably one of the most popular YouTube stars, Singh has gone on a world tour, which was the focus of her documentary, A trip to Unicorn Island. She also has a website where you can purchase products from ""Superwoman"" herself.
