Justice Sonia Sotomayor is a personal shero of mine. The “wise latina” grew up pretty modest in the Bronx, made it to Princeton, law school at Yale and finally the Supreme Court of the United States. I identify with her – being minority and female – and rather than apologizing for who she is, using it to her advantage. So, imagine my excitement when I met her at my swearing-in ceremony at the Supreme Court!
I’m sure you’ve seen her spot on Sesame Street letting little girls all over the globe know that “princess” is not a career. I absolutely love this!
