Lilly Singh (aka Superwoman)’s rise to fame has been incredible to watch. She has really gone from being a normal person to a self-made superwoman dominating media all around the world! In case you don’t know, Superwoman is an Indo-Canadian YouTube star whose videos tend to highlight Indian culture but also contain satirical takes on everyday life and activities people complain about! Superwoman is a multi-talented performer who is a successful vlogger, comedian, rapper, actress, and motivational speaker. She began by posting videos on YouTube back in October 2010 , and has now grown her channel to over 7.6 million subscribers! That number is sure to rise even more after her appearance tonight (Friday, January 22 at 11:35 et/10:35 ct) on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon!
