Recently, Forbes published the list of the ten best paid youtubers of 2021.

Anastasia Radzinskaya was born in Krasnodar Krai, southern Russia, on January 27, 2014. With only a few hours left in this world, doctors told her peers that the baby had cerebral palsy and would probably never be able to talk or walk. . However, they also recommended that they work with her in front of a camera as that could help her development.
Shortly after, Anastasia Radzinskaya's parents moved to the United States with her and used the camera method to help her. By the age of two, the girl who could never talk or walk made a full recovery and proved to be just like any other boy her age.
But since she was already used to the camera and videos, her parents decided to continue with that technique. So that the couple's family and friends could see their daughter's progress, the parents began posting the videos on YouTube, on a channel they decided to call Like Nastya.
Little by little, the channel grew and Anna Radzinskaya and Sergey Radzinskij decided to sell the construction company they had to use that video to develop audiovisual content around their daughter. The decision was correct since in 2021 that channel generates 28 million dollars a year.
