Indian-Canadian comedienne Lilly Singh has earned a nomination in the 2015 Teen Choice Awards, to be held in Los Angeles on August 16, a media report said.
Singh, 26, popularly known by her YouTube username, Superwoman, was nominated in Choice YouTuber and Choice Web Star: Comedy categories, US-based Celebuzz website said on Wednesday.
“HOLY BUCKETS OF AWESOME SAUCE! We have been nominated for TWO #TeenChoice awards! You can vote on FB,” Singh posted on Twitter.
Singh is also a motivational speaker. She is particularly known for her satirical take on everyday life.
Born in Ontario to Malwinder and Sukhwinder Singh, the YouTube star posts videos every Monday and Thursday.
Singh has admitted to struggling with depression before she started her video career.
She says she started making videos to self-medicate and feel happier.
“One of the reasons she decided to pursue a career as a YouTuber is because there was a lack of representation of women on the internet from the South Asian community,” the report said.
She has gained popularity for her funny take on themes such as “How Girls Get Ready”, “Types of Kids at School” and “Girls On Their Periods”.
In addition to making YouTube videos, she has a website under the name Unicorn Island, which sells merchandise based on her YouTube persona.
She has also been featured in many songs, such as Hipshaker, alongside Jassi Sidhu.
Last year, she performed the rap part of the song Mauj Ki Malharein, which featured in the Bollywood film Gulaab Gang.
