Here they are:

Lilly Singh is the woman who made content creation what it is today! It’s safe to say that she’s a pioneer in her field of work and millions of people look up to her. Lilly was born and raised in Toronto, however, she belongs to the Indian heritage. Through her content, she showcases her Indian upbringing, lifestyle and how diverse our culture is. Her ‘brown parents’ sketches are a bit too relatable and accurate, aren’t they?

Also, we love how she never shies away from bringing out her absolute desi self in her videos.

7. Poonam and Priyanka
Poonam and Priyanka or the ‘Shah Twins‘ are widely recognised influencers and even better dancers. Their fun content and groovy choreographies keep us hooked to our screen all day long. They’re seriously what you call #SisterGoals.
