Libby Liu
When Libby Liu, L’93, WG’93, was eight years old, growing up in Silver Spring, Md., her mother, Rae Yen-Yo, was the victim of a terrible case of medical malpractice — a dentist broke a needle into her gum, then left it in there. (It came out two years later.) A slick team of attorneys descended upon Libby’s flustered parents, which only made matters worse: those who grow up in China have a terrible fear of the legal system. Scared, Mrs. Liu took a $1,000 settlement and waived her rights. “I knew my parents got ripped off,” Liu says today. “It never sat right with me.”
