In 2003, Aaron Wong, then 38, and his family immigrated to Bothell for the first time. Wong was born and raised in Singapore, where he met his Japanese wife. They lived Singapore and in Japan.

Wong’s employer was a global operation, so it had offices all around the world. The office in Japan required Wong to make frequent business trips to the Washington area annually. Wong, his wife and their young daughter set forth towards Washington together.

After that first move to the U.S., the family spent about two years in the Seattle area, before moving back to Japan for Wong’s job. But in 2007, for the second time, the family — which by then also included a boy — decided to move back to Seattle, in order to enroll their daughter and son in the American education system. The family now lives in Woodinville.
