However, during the first half of the book I was really intrigued and inspired by her story. I wouldn't say that I was ever a huge Sonia Sotomayor follower before, so obviously didn't know much of her past. Only knew that she was the first Latina to become a Supreme Court justice. #proudLatina
After reading about her life... her childhood, where she grew up, the loss of her father at a very young age, her chronic disease - She did not let those struggles deter from pursuing her dream. I admire her drive to go to school, get good grades, and achieve what at that time seemed impossible... get into Princeton then go to Yale Law. I mean, wow, what an accomplishment.
I have a new respect for Sotomayor. She is a prime example, that just because you grow up in lower class and may not have the same opportunities as others doesn't mean you can't dream big. If only we could all think that way and have that same drive to succeed, how different would this world be?
Now, I leave you with a video of an interview with her. Enjoy.
