By TASC 2018, Anderson Tsai Wang will be a fresh graduate from the Computer Science program at New York University’s College of Arts and Science with a minor in Linguistics. Anderson has always proudly proclaimed his Taiwanese-American identity, albeit unknowingly so of how or where that perspective stands in the world scheme. Born and raised in the suburbs of New Jersey, Anderson’s initial ties with the Taiwanese culture were built through his work performing as a SanTaiZi choreographer for many events held by the Taiwanese American Association of New York. His participation in TAANY’s performances have introduced him to Taiwanese-American communities, as well as given him the opportunity to meet some of Taiwan’s political figures and famous artists. Despite having been the one American delegate in TASC 2017 who had made several trips to Taiwan prior, Anderson was nonetheless presented a more meaningful perspective of Taiwan’s culture thanks to the program. It brings Anderson delight to witness the other delegates’ first-time adventures of Taiwan, which is why he stepped up to become the American Executive Committee Chair for TASC 2018 in full support of what TASC stands for. Personally, Anderson enjoys singing, dancing, bowling, and doing puzzles. Chances are, he’ll be inviting you to join him in these activities by the end of your first interaction with him.
