Toronto YouTube sensation Lilly Singh, a.k.a Superwoman, has hit another career milestone, making it on the Forbes 30 under 30 list.

The 27-year-old Canadian comedian was named in the Hollywood and Entertainment category.

Singh's Superwoman YouTube channel features her standup act, and has over 7.5 million subscribers.

This isn't the first time Singh has landed on a Forbes list.

Last year, the comedian made it on the Forbes list of YouTube millionaires.

Singh was eighth on the list, earning $2.5 million. 

She shared eighth place with prankster Roman Atwood and chef Rosanna Pansino.

Last year, Singh took her act on the road with a North American tour, with a stop in Toronto in June at the Danforth Music Hall.

Two other Toronto personalities have joined Singh on the list. They are musicians Shawn Mendes, 17, and The Weeknd, 25.
