Sonia Sotomayor Appointed US Supreme Court Judge

sonia_sotomayor.jpgJudge Sonia Sotomayor has arguably lived the American dream.

She was born to a Puerto Rican family and grew up in a public housing project in the South Bronx. Her father was a factory worker with a third-grade education, and died when Sotomayor was nine years old. Her mother raised Sotomayor while working as a nurse.

And her amazing story goes on and on...

Sotomayor graduated as valedictorian of her class at Blessed Sacrament and at Cardinal Spellman High School in New York. She won a scholarship to Princeton where she continued to excel, graduating summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa.
