Unconventional students at Rice: ‘Becoming who I wanted to be’

Will Rice College senior Lam Yuk Wong came to Rice from China in the fall of 2010 not knowing what to expect.

In fact, that project won her and her partner the Willy Revolution Award for Innovation in Engineering Design and a $5,000 prize.
