Born in Anchorage, Alaska and raised in Bellevue, Washington, Wong plans to travel to societies that have rebuilt from civil conflict or transitioned from dictatorial rule. Through Central and South America his primary focus is upon revolution through art and bodily expression. Nick hopes to communicate to people beyond spoken language and instead through the art of dance, poetry and boxing. Afterwards he has absolutely no concrete idea what he is going to do, but has only a dedication towards changing collective mindsets, possibly through the same vehicles he plans to use or something he develops along the way.
