She's on the March cover of Elle, she recently made Forbes 30 under 30 and now Lilly Singh, better known as YouTube's Superwoman, is debuting her new documentary chronicling her first-ever world tour.

Not too shabby.

A Trip to Unicorn Island, a nod to what the Toronto-born online sensation affectionately calls her over 7 million YouTube followers, made its Canadian premiere Tuesday night.

She told CBC News her 30-city world tour was an eye-opening experience.

"Mid-way through the tour, I learned that protecting your vision, your creative baby does not make you a bad person," Singh said. "I learned the business side of things and how to be a boss during the tour."

She credited family and friends for keeping her grounded, adding that "you need a really solid foundation of friends and family to keep you where you need to be."

She also gave a shout out to Scarborough, where she originally grew up.

"I will forever and always identify with Scarborough — no matter where I move."

Singh had a premiere in Los Angeles last week.
