Sonia Sotomayor - A Strong Leader to Celebrate this Hispanic Heritage Month

Updated: Feb 9

There is a lot of talk recently about the United States Supreme Court - With it being Hispanic Heritage Month, what better time than now to celebrate an impressive member of the highest court, Sonia Sotomayor.


I sat down and read the book, Who Is Sonia Sotomayor to learn a bit about her life growing up, and the paths she took along the way to become a member of the Supreme Court.
