Lilly Singh is a YouTube tour de force, most widely known by her screen name, IISuperwomanII. She is one of the most popular online content creators and one of the most recognizable faces of the generation. A woman of South Asian background, she often showcases her heritage and talks about issues personal to her, both because of her race and gender. For millions of young people, especially girls of ethnic minorities in the West, Lilly Singh has become a role model and a crystallization of what it feels like to belong somewhere "in-between".
