    Being a child of divorce can be really tough — just ask Tiana, who at six years old was already giving her parents advice on how to have a happy relationship.

    Her mother, Cherish Sherry, recorded the precocious little girl as she sat on the stairs of their Surrey, British Columbia home after she and her ex-husband, Alfred, had gotten into a heated exchange in front of their daughter. After the two had calmed down, Tiana told them both to be nice to each other.

    Moved, Sherry sat her daughter down to listen to her words of wisdom, which absolutely stunned her. “I didn’t think she could think like that!! She brought me [to] tears and [made me] feel guilty.”

    “I’m trying to do my best in my heart,” Tiana said in the three minute video. “I want you, Mom, my dad, everyone to be friends. I want everyone to be smiling. Not like being mad. I think you can do it.”

    The video went viral, racking up 14 million views on her mother’s FaceBook account and touching the hearts of many.

    Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.

    Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.

    However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.

    We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community. Even a $1 contribution goes a long way.  Thank you for everyone's support. We love you all and can't appreciate you guys enough.
