YouTube sensation Superwoman made her presence in Singapore for ‘It’s A Girl Thing’.
The Canadian-born Punjabi girl has been a big hit on the YouTube, chalking close to 9.8 million subscribers with her whacky video postings since 2010.
Lilly Singh, 27, has been roped in for the ‘It’s A Girl Thing’, a female empowerment event to help further women’s education in Kenya.
Superwoman is no stranger to the homes of many youth, especially from the Punjabi community.
Her YouTube sensation hit a new high when she was invited to the White House, giving her a photo opportunity with US First Lady Michelle Obama.
With her huge YouTube subscribers, promoters of ‘It’s A Girl Thing’ hope to capitalise on her popularity to spread some love.
“And more than anything, I have a lot of influence and power, which I’m so grateful for, and I want to do something positive with it,” she was quoted in an article in The New Paper.
The programme aims to bring women together to promote positive personal development and discuss social issues such as anti-bullying, self-worth and expectations of the future.
Lilly, 27, also gave talks at high schools in Canada and realised that girl-on-girl hate is as prevalent now as it was during her high school days.
While in Singapore, Lily has been going places. Among others, she went for a swim at the Infinity pool at Marina Bay Sands, posing in swimwear with the Singapore sykline in the background.
This is not her first trip to Singapore. Last year, she took part in the Trip to Unicorn Island World Tour 2015.
