about

Arguably one of the most prominent current Supreme Court justices, Sonia Sotomayor has paved her own way to enact profound changes and reforms, despite the obstacles that stood in her way. And she certainly has had her share of adversity: she was diagnosed with diabetes when she was just eight years old, lived in housing projects in the Bronx in her youth, and fought against blatant discrimination throughout her career. Now in her early sixties, Justice Sotomayor has already made history in being appointed to the Court as the first Latina justice, the third woman justice, and one of the three youngest justices in this position.
Sylvia Mendoza is a writer, editor, and speaker on the Latino experience and gender issues. She has written for the Los Angeles Times, Writers' Journal, Hispanic Outlook, and more. She has also been a featured speaker for the National Women's History Project.
