KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – There’s a reason why over 11 million subscribers love her. Lilly Singh, a.k.a ||Superwoman||, is a hilarious comedienne. But that’s not all there is to her. She’s also a wise role model to the hundreds of young girls and boys that came to watch her at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre’s (KLCC) Plenary Hall. It’s her second-to-the-last stop for her HOW TO BE BAWSE: A Guide to
Surviving Conquering Life book tour.
The Binge team was one of the lucky ones to feel the unicorn magic of positivity when Singh shared her insights on life. She delivered strong messages on hard work and how to achieve success. At the same time, Singh also highlighted the importance of being kind and confident. It was overall empowerment.
“I’ve always loved entertaining people. I never thought I could make a career out of it! I’m definitely blessed and fortunate to have Youtube,” Singh said when asked how she feels about what she’s currently doing.
Whether that be the two, unicorn inspired characters in Ice Age: Collision Course or the skits she uploads, her passion is definitely the ignition to her success.
Singh shared her story on how her first video in 2010 only had 70 views. This did not discourage her. She persevered to get to where she is now. The 28 year old, who is definitely #winning, mentioned that it was truly a hustle.
One of Singh’s best pieces of advice? Always embrace life – even when it’s messy because there’s no shortcuts to success. And, while there will be temptations to take the elevator, she believes one should put in the work and climb the ladder to conquer their dreams.
She also talked about her #GirlLove initiative that aims to break the course of girl-on-girl hate. Singh encourages positivity among women of all ages instead of being in competition.
Singh is a Canadian of Indian origin who started her own Youtube channel in 2010. Visits to India led to a strong connection to her Punjabi heritage. The psychology major ranked third on Forbes’ list of the world’s highest paid Youtubers. She admitted at one point that she suffered from depression and that Youtube helped her deal with it.
Singh has also won several awards for her channel: a People’s Choice Award, 3 Streamy Awards, 2 Teen Choice Awards, and an MTV Fandom Award.
All in all, it was a fun, Tuesday night where audiences as young as 12 and their parents came together to see the Youtube star and now author.
