"When everyone at school is speaking one language, and a lot of your classmates' parents also speak it, and you go home and see that your community is different -there is a sense of shame attached to that. It really takes growing up to treasure the specialness of being different."
-Sonia Sotomayor .
.
.
Being different is SO special. It's taken longer than I'd like to be happy with and accepting of myself, and sometimes I still backslide, but I've learned so much along the way. This is for everyone who feels like they don't fit in, floating around in a salty sea of uncertainty- don't give up because you haven't found your place. Our differences exist because we're meant for something, and as long as you stay the course, your life will come through for you.  Don't shy away from hard work, it's what will build you up and give you confidence. I repeat: don't give up. Even if you feel like you're on the outside looking in, the time will come where your unique way of living and looking at life will be exactly what is needed in this world. You're never alone, because I'm right there with you. 📷 @spencert83

~SEPTEMBER SUNDAYS~
Our next Hispanic Highlight is Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Hailing from New York to Puerto-Rican native parents, she became the first Latinx Justice of the United States. Not only that, she was also the 3rd female Justice ever elected. Justice Sotomayor fights for reform of the criminal justice system, and making impassioned dissents on issues of race, gender and ethnic identity. #AssociateJustice #latinx #latinxheritagemonth #soniasotomayor

Our influential Latina today is Sonia Sotomayor. Sonia Sotomayor was born on June 25, 1954, in the Bronx borough of New York City. Her desire to be a judge was first inspired by the TV show Perry Mason. She graduated from Yale Law School and passed the bar in 1980. She became a U.S. District Court Judge in 1992 and was elevated to the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals in 1998. In 2009, she became the first Latina Supreme Court Justice in U.S. history. a self-described “Nuyorican” whose mother, a nurse, and father, a factory worker, left Puerto Rico during World War II . Sonia Sotomayor was “a child with dreams,” as she once said, the little girl who learned at 8 that she had diabetes, who lost her father when she was 9, who devoured Nancy Drew books and spent Saturday nights playing bingo, marking the cards with chickpeas, in the squat red brick housing projects of the East Bronx. (New York Times article by Sheryl Gay Stolberg). Sonia Sotomayor teaches us that you can achieve your dreams through hard work and perseverance. Not letting anything or anyone stop you from being following your dreams and reaching your goals. As my boo @tatiannatarot and I coined in college, don’t just do something, Sotomayor it! Never settle for a basic life, you are capable of greatness but it starts with believing it yourself and then making it happen by getting shit done. Sonia Sotomayor is a influential Latina because she is an incredible role model for all women of color and the lgbtq community of all ages, true inspiration ❤️🌻 #hispanicheritagemonth #soniasotomayor #inspiration #fellownewyorker #bronxborn #sotomayorit #latina

HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH: SONIA SOTOMAYOR

#HispanicHeritageMonth: #SoniaSotomayor

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Biography profiles Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic and third woman to serve on the Supreme Court.

BY BOGAR ALONSO, SEP 15, 2017 

Becoming a judge, in any capacity, was a childhood fascination for Sonia Sotomayor. So, even as a lifelong overachiever, she exceeded her own expectations by becoming only the third woman and first Hispanic justice to be appointed to the Supreme Court. That’s even more impressive when considering the Court has been around for 229 years.

Just as impressive is that Sotomayor came from very humble means. After moving from Puerto Rico to New York’s South Bronx, her father worked as a manufacturing toolmaker and her mother as a licensed practical nurse. Things only got more dire after Sotomayor’s father died from heart complications when she was just nine. Since he spoke only Spanish, Sotomayor picked up English fluently only after he passed away.

Originally, a young Sotomayor wanted to follow in the fictional footsteps of Nancy Drew by becoming a detective, but a diabetes diagnosis at age seven altered her plans. After watching an episode of court show drama Perry Mason, her new calling was determined: She would be an arbiter of justice.

- DAY 8: Sonia Sotomayor 🌟👩🏻‍⚖️
-
- This post spotlights a Puerto Rican #badass who broke the glass ceiling in government by becoming the first #Latina ever to become Supreme Court Justice in US history!!! 😳😃👏🏽👏🏽
-
- Born and raised in the Bronx, Sonia grew up watching a tv show called Perry Mason. 📺The show was about a defense attorney who defended falsely accused people in court. This is what she credits for first ever inspiring her. She saw that the judge was the one who ultimately had the power to decide what was just and throw the case out in instances where the accused were found innocent- and that's what she set as her goal; to serve justice to the people who deserve it. She was also fascinated by reading Nancy Drew books 📚
-
- Through her extremely hard work and valiant #dedication (while battling juvenile diabetes) Sonia excelled in school. She was accepted into and graduated from Yale Law. She passed the bar exam in 1980, and became a US District Judge in 1992. 6 years later in '98, she was promoted to US Second Circuit Court of Appeals. -
- In addition to her work in the Court of Appeals, however, she also began #teaching as an adjunct professor at NYU and Columbia Law School. She also received honorary law degrees from Princeton and Brooklyn Law School - GA'HEAD WITCHO' BIGGOL' BRAIN GRIL!!! 🎓🙌🏽💯
-
- Her historical stride came in May of 2009, when president #Obama announced his nomination of Sonia for Supreme Court Justice. Later that year in August, she was confirmed and history was officially made✨
