Sonia Sotomayor did not seem destined for greatness. Born into a Bronx housing project, she was the daughter of an alcoholic who died when she was only nine, not long before she herself was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. Few would have predicted that she would go to Princeton or Yale Law School on full scholarships, or be selected by three presidents to high judicial post; the last being her 2009 appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court by Barack Obama. She was the first Hispanic and only the third woman to seat on our nation's highest court.
