In 2019, Canadian entertainer Lilly Singh was celebrated as the first LGBTQ+ woman of Indian descent to host a late night talk show on a major American television network. Two years and one ongoing pandemic later, NBC cancelled the show, leaving Singh to figure out her next move, while trying to conquer her feelings of failure. Singh, who rose to fame as a YouTube sensation, shares how she worked her way out of a slump in her new book Be a Triangle: How I Went from Being Lost to Getting My Life Into Shape. She speaks with Piya Chattopadhyay about how she regained her happiness by finding her foundation, the barriers she came up against in the late-night arena, and what it means to be a leader as a person of Indian heritage in North American culture.
