Announcing the First Ever Daniel Raymond Wong Memorial Fellowship Recipient!

Laura Zhang
May 2 2016

Laura is currently a junior in the Economics department, originally from Houston, Texas. Laura will work in Washington, D.C. this summer with The Council of Economic Advisers at The White House on a variety of projects within the Housing, Technology and Innovation, and Inequity portfolios of the office. Additionally, she is interested in making a broader impact, hoping to eventually gain a Ph.D. in Economics and wind up in the policy world where she hopes to influence domestic policies to be more equal and just for American families. Laura said her internship experience was tremendously valuable and confirmed her desire to work in public service. Laura clearly embodies many of the things that Daniel cared deeply about.
