She has explained that the name Superwoman was prompted by a childhood idea that she had an invisible "S" on her chest, making her believe she CAN do anything. Punjabi culture is frequently portrayed in her videos, which also contain satirical takes on everyday life and people's favorite complaints. Her most popular video is How Girls Get Ready and her most popular series features her fictional parents, Paramjeet and Manjeet, both played by Singh herself, reacting to trending and controversial videos.
