Since this is a series on spending way too much time on Youtube, I can safely admit that I discovered Lilly Singh’s channel through binge-watching Hannah Hart’s and Grace Helbig’s videos who both collaborated with her.
And since then I’ve been hooked.
But I’m being rude, let me introduce you to IISuperwomanII first:
as I mentioned before her real name is Lilly Singh and she’s a 26-year old Youtuber from Toronto, Canada.
She studied and got a degree in Psychology but in her videos she mainly focuses on comedic content. However she’s also got a couple of music videos, the latest of which was only released a couple of weeks ago.
Lilly Singh’s Youtube career began in 2010 and sky-rocketed ever since, enabling her to collaborate with TV and movie stars such as The Big Bang Theory‘s Kunal Nayyar, Sharukh Khan and Seth Rogen as well as various other famous Youtubers such as the aforementioned Hannah Hart, but also ASAPSciene, Rhett and Link (on GoodMythicalMorning) and the Fine Brothers.
Lilly is also one of the most ambitious Youtubers out there: she writes all of her sketches (featuring her “parents“, her real parents, her friends and other Youtubers), shoots and edits them herself. And she still finds time for various other projects such as her 12 collaborations of Christmas, her two web series with ilovemakeup (the first episode of the most recent one, where she plays the spy Lana Steele was only released two weeks ago), her daily vlogs which are just as entertaining as her main channel videos and now she’s even embarking on a world tour.
What few people know: Singh suffered from depression a couple of years back and had a seriously tough time.
She was lucky to live and struggle through this and decided that, being aware of what your mind can do to you but that you can also control your mind to some degree, she wants to stay positive and she wants to spread that message.
She seems very carefree and some would say overly excited in her videos, but knowing a bit about her background and her struggle with depression, I find this all the more admirable.
So why should you watch her videos?
IISuperwomanII is not only funny, she’s hilarious.
Her videos make me laugh every time, even on days when I’m feeling a bit under the weather.
As plain as this reason might be, having a reliable source of guaranteed laughter is not to be underrated.

Sara was probably listening to the Raconteurs’ ‘You Don’t Understand Me’ while writing this article.
