My Beloved World

Author: Sonia Sotomayor

Year Published: 2013

Description: In this autobiography, Sonia Sotomayor chronicles her journey from a challenging childhood in a public housing project in the Bronx to the Ivy League to being appointed the first Hispanic and third female Supreme Court justice in U.S. history.  Along the way, she recounts the many role models and mentors from whom she drew strength and the different experiences—including being diagnosed with juvenile diabetes at age 7—that helped her develop the determination and self-reliance to seek a better life through education and a legal career.

Recommended by:

'Although wisdom is built on life experiences, the mere accumulation of years guarantees nothing.'
