Asia in an interview shared that the best part of the show, 'The Raising Asia' was that she would get to spend more time with her family.
"Being with my family full time! I liked being on the other shows, but I was away from my sister Bella Blu and my dad … I missed them a lot. On my show, we are together all the time and I can share my dream of performing with them. They help me in so many ways, especially my mom, but everyone has a role to play in helping me get to the top! I’m very blessed with a supportive and loving family, even when things get a little crazy at times."
Also, when asked how she would deal with negative feedback regarding her work, she replied,
"My parents have taught me since a very early age that there will be a lot of people genuinely happy for me if I became a success, but there would be just as many that will dislike me because of it. I’m experiencing some of that now, but I use them as motivators. Nothing bothers them more than continuing to be successful. I pray for them, but I rarely think about them because I’m too busy working and focusing on myself."
Just as Asia said in the interview, her parents have indeed helped her grow such strong, standing up for their child's passion. Moreover, Asia beautifully reciprocates the support that she gets from her family.
Thanking her father for his presence on her life Asia Instagrammed a collage of her sister, her father and herself.
