iiSuperwomanii is no more, as Lilly Singh had officially changed her Instagram handle.
The talk show host and influencer opened up about ditching her original social media name and changing it to @lilly.
“Allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is @Lilly,” she started before telling her fans the story behind the original handle. “Nine years ago, I decided to make a YouTube channel and thought nothing of it. I didn’t think it would alter my life path, turn into a career and to be honest I didn’t even think I’d upload more than five videos. When prompted to choose a username I instinctively typed Superwoman because it had been my MSN messenger screen name (shoutouts millennials).”
Lilly continues, “Based on a song by Lil Mo and Fabulous, I used to call myself Superwoman growing up because like any kid I wanted so badly to deal with life’s obstacles like a hero. As I grew up, I held on to this belief that everyone could be their own superhero. Until this day, I truly believe that we have all the tools we need to be our own saving grace.”
“It’s been heartwarming and empowering to hear people address me as Superwoman, a name I worked so hard to live up to. But today as I type this, as the person I’ve grown into, I feel even more empowered by the name Lilly.”
“Lilly has become an even bigger hero than Superwoman on this journey through my life,” she says. “Lilly encompasses everything it took to get to where I am… and it’s a place I’m proud to be. And so at this time, it feels right to give thanks to the moniker Superwoman and to lay the cape to rest. Today my biggest and best super powers lay within Lilly and thus Lilly I shall be. Aka new handle is @Lilly. Wooop! Woop! Holla atcha girlllll 💃🏽💪🏽❤️.”
