Born in Yorba Linda, California, Asia first took interest in gymnastics when she was just a toddler. Quickly realizing she had a natural athleticism and a love for movement, her parents enrolled her in dance lessons. At the young age of five, she made history by becoming the youngest StarPower National Championship winner to ever take the title. She has since gone on to win or place at numerous competitions. When Asia is not busy showcasing her many talents, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends at the pool, going to the mall, or reading a good book.

At such a young age, Asia is no stranger to the small screen. She made her television debut at only six years old when she entered the first season of Lifetime's Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition.

After the competition, Asia joined Abby Lee Miller's elite junior competition team on season 3 of Dance Moms. Asia won virtually every competition she entered while on the show, blowing her opponents away with her talent.
