Sonia Sotomayor: Our Justice

By: Gabriela Yareliz

Today’s Hispanic Heritage Month feature is Sonia Maria Sotomayor, the first Hispanic woman (Puerto Rican!) to be appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States.

Justice Sotomayor came from humble beginnings in the Bronx, and she honored the sacrifices made by her hard-working mother by taking and making every opportunity that has led her to her current bench.

If you are looking for a great read, pick up her biography, My Beloved World.

“I am an ordinary person who has been blessed with extraordinary opportunities and experiences.” Sonia Sotomayor
